Irène Laub Gallery is pleased to present “A day with you”, the first solo show of Spanish artist Guillermo Mora in Brussels. The pieces presented in the exhibition set up a story and construct a collective portrait through an autobiographical perspective. The origin of the project is a series of memorization exercises inspired by people who crossed the artist’s path. While first retaining the colors of the clothes these people were wearing, Mora subsequently materializes them in his studio by assembling and overlaying small pieces of paper. This visual diary, made up of delicate and colored sketches compiled on a daily basis, constitutes the core of this exhibition. Each work embodies one of these patterns, one of these people. The pieces hence do not only display a particular range of color but also reflect a name, a day, a meeting, a wish, a memory. More information: Image © Guillermo Mora, 2021
