The body of artistic work by Jordi Colomer constitutes a project that draws its conceptual and formal inspiration from the relationship between the human being and her/his surroundings. In this respect the size, the proportion, the scale and the harmony of the human body play a central part in an oeuvre which up until now had been distinguished by its avoidance of any visible human presence – real or reproduced – in the artist’s sculptures, installations and photographs. Colomer tends to turn to allegory in order to confront the spectator not so much with images as with places.---The discursive mechanism operates with a hermetism which prevents us from knowing “all” of the meaning, which the artist deliberately conceals, making indiscriminate use of architectural, literary, sculptural, theatrical or choreographical references. These are the vestiges and the requisites of certain activities that are unknown to us, and are only pointed to through the deployment of certain habitual, common elements, such as plates, rugs, tables, chairs, or architectural elements such as pedestals, models… Order and disorder or movement and stability are couples that frequently reveal themselves in this body of work. José Lebrero Stals, 1998
