Perejaume

Perejaume "Postaler", 1984

The retrospective exhibition on the work of Perejaume (Sant Pol de Mar, 1957) was a thematic survey of his artistic career. It included works produced in a range of media – painting, photography, sculpture, installation, theatre and literature – and provided an overview of his body of work as well as conveying the system of thought that it is framed within.

Since the early seventies, when he began to exhibit regularly, Perejaume’s pictorial practice has been strongly influenced by the search for his own personal methods of figuration and imagination: collage, nativity scenes, un-painting and oism. His interest in landscape genre has also led him to compare geological and cultural visions of nature.

The title of this retrospective, Dis-Exhibit, was an ironic take on the incessant production of images that characterises the contemporary world in general, and the museum space more specifically. The artist assumed an ecological approach, presenting himself as a regulator of the consumption of these images.

The exhibition brought together a selection of 150 works produced between 1977 and 1999, and several installations conceived expressly for the occasion, such as Dir-buix (1999) and Pic-ments (1999).
