NYX, artists as the blind, the blind as artists

15 May to 29 June 2014

Àlvar Calvet

In Greek and Roman mythology, Nyx is the personification and goddess of the night.
As a logical consequence of my own evolution and based on the preparation of an exhibition held in Madrid in 2012, I have used blindness or non-light for the first time and I am doing so based on interviews held with 6 people with major visual impairment. Analysis of the responses and contact with the group has from this moment allowed me to develop a series of works that express my reflections. In the most recent works, I have organised activities in which I place the collaborators and myself in the place of the other, in my case in that of the blind person.
