Booking Info:

Join us for this very special brunch with artist Ira Lombardía. Enjoy a coffee and something to eat whilst listening to Lombardia speak about her photographic practice and work on display at Open Eye Gallery.

Ira Lombardía, infiltrated the legacy of the most recent documenta festival, held in Kassel under the artistic directorship of Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev over the Summer of 2012. After a visit to this exhibition, Lombardía included a fictional artist in their exhibition catalogue whose work was created by chance. During the time she spent in Kassel, the artist experienced an ‘epiphany’, the sudden manifestation of an artwork purely created by light inside the Fridericianum (the exhibition’s main venue). The piece on show at Open Eye follows the artist’s philological, yet entirely fictional, playful recreation of the history behind such a metaphysical and unexpected manifestation.
