Nitrate. Xavier Ribas is the first monographic exhibition dedicated to the work of Xavier Ribas, and features an extensive sampling of his photographic practice over the past ten years. The exhibition takes its name from the artist’s most recent photographic research project, which explores nitrate mining led by British companies in the Chile’s Atacama Desert. This ambitious essay produced between 2009 and 2014 is presented for first time, alongside a selection of earlier works.

Exhibition

I believe an artwork should leave the viewer perplexed, make him reflect on the meaning of life
