Art Madrid'24 – BENE BERGADO AND THE PERSON

BENE BERGADO. Detail of Garbage Eggs, 2015

 

 

Bene Bergado, Salamanca 1965. She is a “salmantina” artist, who began her career in the nineties. Her work, almost exclusively dedicated to delving into the behaviors of the human condition, helps us to understand the strange mutations between truth and suspicion. Her sculptures, created by complex techniques and difficult to guess, accentuate the mystery of the inspiration to which he submits. These tensions, to which the human being is subjected, are shaped by personal metaphors and external conventions.

The pressures between the individual and the group, are externalized in this sample treated in an unconventional way. His curator, Manuel Olveira, has not followed an order based on chronological test, since most of the work has been created specifically for the exhibition at MUSAC. The exhibition, presented as a great installation dedicated to the human, places the viewer in micro contexts (home, family, unusual and shocking) that help us to understand the dependencies and interactions in their most primary dimensions.

The series, refer to the measurement of dependence we have on certain objects, such as "junk eggs", which shows us the amount of garbage we generate in a short period of time. The waste, are part of the day to day of the human being, and this artist makes us reflect on it. Environmental and economic concerns are a topical issue, but we seldom stop to assimilate those concerns.

The collective way in which we relate contrasts with our innermost being. Each individual is different, but at the same time we all behave in a very similar way. The cultural and the social, condition us when it comes to knowing and behaving. Other facilities, such as "Family plot" created with personal objects of people close to the artist, make us reflect on all of the above. You can enjoy this exhibition until 8 January. If you are in the area, do not hesitate to visit it.
