"Elsewhere/Elders a Solo Show by Javier Marchán curated by Olof van de Wal"
2006-02-22 until 2006-03-12
Wall House Foundation
Groningen, , NL Netherlands

January 22nd, 2006 marks the opening of Elsewhere, a solo show by Spanish visual artist Javier Marchán in the Wall House, John Hejduk‚s masterpiece in Groningen, the Netherlands. Marchán lived in the house for a period of three months, October till January 2005 and was the first visual artist to stay in the house as part of the artist in residency programme of the Wall House foundation. The installations can be visited until March 12, 2006.

During his stay in the Wall House, Marchán became fascinated with the tension Hejduk summons up between the two and three dimensionality, a tension referred to by Marchán as the fourth dimension. Fascinating though the spatiality in the Wall House is, Marchán maintains that the building in essence is a two dimensional image, a still life. This tension, the fourth dimension, is what Marchán regards as the principal concept for his work in Elsewhere, together with the strong sense of symbolism Hejduk invokes in his work. Marchán has produced a set of twelve silk screens and spatial installations throughout the Wall House#2.

Javier Marchán (Barcelona,1967) engages in interdisciplinary aspects of contemporary art, design, architecture, theory and authorship. His artworks are fictional, neo-abstractive and multi-layered; using a variety of visual media to propose evolving notions of perception, significance and consciousness. He favors a visual practice where the representative nature of meaning ˜ bounding together what we call Œreality‚ ˜ gets emptied out momentarily. This methodology is done in order to get a more profound relation to art and to the perception of reality. Marchán has been working both independently and in collaboration with many individuals from different disciplines in order to challenge traditional formats of artistic practice. His work is being exhibited internationally.
