Coco Capitán

 

LET ME NOT INTRODUCE MYSELF.THE PLEASURE IS YOURS is a major solo exhibition of photography and installation works by Spanish artist Coco Capitán at Display Gallery. The show invites visitors to engage with the artist naive personality through six series of self-portraits with different topics that act almost story tales. The exhibition space is filled with almost-obsessive handwriting and objects that seem directly thrown out of the photographic frame. The title of the show LET ME NOT INTRODUCE MYSELF.THE PLEASURE IS YOURS plays on the irony of Capitan’s works and act as a reminder for the viewer of the effectiveness of a picture as a self-explanatory medium.

This Solo show brings together pieces from the artist’s last summer exhibition in Cádiz at ECCO Espacio de Creacción Contemporánea (in collaboration with the Spanish Arts Council) and new pieces under a different curatorial direction.

Curated by Stefano Colombini and Lorena Benot. Supported using public funding by Spain Arts Council -Ayuntamiento de Cádiz and Display Gallery.
