The exhibition Invocable Reality explores possible perspectives on reality from art practices through a selection of works by eleven artists from different backgrounds and generations. The works in Invocable Reality approach reality in a subtle way. They start from the ‘here and now’ of the reality that the artists intend to ‘investigate and conquer’: incorporating fragments in the exhibition space (Roman Ondák), turning the gallery into a real space (Antonio Ortega), filming it (Lutz Mommartz, Jeremy Deller and Mireia Sallarès), trying to direct it (John Smith), looking for connections in space and time (Enric Farrés-Duran), influencing it (Núria Güell), showing the devastating effects of a mediated reality (Phil Collins), demonstrating the impossibility of its representation (Rafel G. Bianchi) or showing how we have turned death into something unreal (Jill Magid). The catalogue reproduces a series of photographs of the exhibition installation, whose selection of works is discussed in the text by Montse Badia, curator of the exhibition, as well as the essay ‘On “The Real”’ by the French philosopher Clément Rosset.
