Terrae Novae

24. Nov 2022 - 15. Jan 2023

Fousion Gallery
Calle Carassa 4, Principal 2da
08003 Barcelona
Spain

Fousion Gallery proudly presents Terrae Novae, a contemporary surrealistic journey and visions towards a “New World”.

Supported by the start of the new era of Aquarius, 9 artists projected their ideas through a whimsical atmosphere, challenging hegemonic visions, observed with predictions towards a new world in construction.

New dimensions and unseen perceptions of our world are depicted as futuristic or surreal. A desire to alter nowadays’ societies, to build from scratch a space of peace, new structures including some nostalgic souvenirs from the past creating a Terrae Novae. 

Vast, infinite terrains, powerful landscapes out of our deep mind inhabited by beings and the consciousness of our cosmos, longing to evolve and find their place in the galaxy.

Profound visions of the unknown panorama, fronting new eras, generating a relentless passage of time. The speedy course is stopped in a concrete moment, in a specific scene, a portrait of a distorted reality gives space to seed, grow and cultivate the new conceptions.

Artists

Bruno Pontiroli

Bruno Pontiroli creates mind-bending explorations of the relationship between humans and animals. From his dreamlike visions, he conjures up surreal and fantastic universes, where centaurs cut off the head of half-human half-horse creatures, over-eager men can embrace large walrus or jump on twisted giraffes and dromedaries fit their cubic-shaped humps into each other. A poetic and absurd ability to make the impossible happen, while a hippopotamus is standing on his tongue...
