Ground Control

23 March — 3 June 2017

Exhibition view, Teresa Solar Abboud 'Ground Control' at Galería Joan Prats (Barcelona), 2017

The idea of tense balance between oneself and the world is present in the videos by Teresa Solar Abboud (Madrid, 1985). In Being a person you did not know you were a puppet adopts the role of an unknown entity who is born in us and who looks at us from the outside. Continuing with this idea, in Ground Control, the artist is transformed into the clay ball that turns on the potter’s wheel, while fragmented stories that connect the accident of the Columbia with the injuries suffered by the artist herself appear.
