Like Goya and Solana did in their time, the new work of Juanan Soria (1985, Spain) arose by ‘looking and telling with the eyes of today’.Soria put on his most critical mask to interpret the current Spanish situation. Hereby, he endorses the idea of the artist as an active witness of the world surrounding him, which is changing at an incredible speed.Unemployment, daily corruption and disillusionment with the political class are therefore the ingredients for Soria’s first solo exhibition in Belgium, resulting in drawings, paintings and video work.
