Chema Alvargonzalez sees himself as an itinerant subject: a traveler in movement. The artist’s photography work is presented here as a large constellation, both in form and in approach: a series of points of light connected to each other and constantly reconnecting.
It is during his experience of travel that he dubbed "spinning around the world" that Alvargonzalez established points of connection with what surrounds him. Points that he understands as light, as a source of energy, and as moments of vital connection between the physical and the mental: spaces that open up during the journey.
Going beyond documenting and photographing his surroundings, Alvargonzalez created his own cartographies and maps. As part of the journey, the artist maps the geography of his movements, generating Mapas de Ciudad (with images of cities such as New York) and the dreamlike landscapes from the series Un sueño de Ciudad (with images of cities such as Berlin, Madrid or Castellón de la Plana).
With the support of Caja Castellón, Alvargonzalez’s artworks were previously presented in Sala San Miguel in Castellón de la Plana, Spain, before traveling to Berlin to be exhibited in GlogauAIR’s Project Space.
