About

In Prophecy and Abyss, Magda Delgado presents a set of works - drawing, polaroid photography and installation - that reflect on the predestination of the end of Civilisation.

In an aesthetic informed by the medieval imagery of the divine punishment, inevitably associated with the current world political tensions, Magda Delgado's work alternates between objects of worship as "Memento Mori" (*) and the aesthetic comfort of the image - "Beautiful as Consolation“ - as a secular refuge of Mankind in face of its finitude and the uncertainty of the future of its species.

(*) latin expression that alerts to the finitude of Men: „remember you will die“
