Anormal (Abnormal) is Ismael Iglesias’s second exhibition at SC Gallery. Anormal has been constructed like a labyrinth, such an excessive concentration of images that it produces disorientation. This overwhelming accumulation hinders the leisurely contemplation of each individual image, but it doesn’t prevent it. If you want to see it as a simple scenographic display, you can just take a quick look and leave the gallery. However, if you prefer to gaze away from the screens and try to lose yourself in that incomprehensible space, walking between paintings installed on the floor and walls covered with hanging canvases, you will surely find an incentive not to look for the exit and stay for a long time disoriented in this forest of signs. A good time because Anormal is not only accumulation, but also a wealth of surprises and variety. In the exhibition, the artist has grouped pieces from different periods, techniques, sizes and support mediums corresponding to his last nine years of work.
