IT'S NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
For her individual exhibition in FUEGO, Segovia presented a project that consisted of a single gesture: the intervention on the main wall (approximately 17 m long), with only one painting hanging in the center. Behind, she painted a Euclidean illusionist space that takes on the effect of a trompel’oeil painted tiles alluding to a bathroom. These planes serve as a type of magnet for the retina, concentrating the viewer’s gaze in the center, to be able to leave and enter from the pictorial space to the exhibition space and finally to the production one. The existence of a single piece examines the way in which we relate to objects of contemplation in the era of the hyper-velocity of circulation and socialization of images. The work aims to point to a condition of contemporary painting within exhibition spaces and its relationship with an audience,
simultaneously questioning our way of seeing.
