Houston : Miguel Soler-Roig, The Ruin of Memory


Barbara Davis Gallery presents its new exhibition The Ruin of Memory, a solo-exhibition by Spanish artist Miguel Soler-Roig, in conjunction with FotoFest 2016 Biennial. This show is on view through April 16, 2016. This marks Soler-Roig’s inaugural solo-exhibition in the United States.

In his exhibition The Ruin of Memory, Miguel Soler-Roig presents a series of photographs that document the artist’s former childhood  home in Barcelona . After thirty-five years, Soler-Roig returned to the vacant space and felt inspired to create this profound body of work. The images portray each of the rooms of the house from an intimate and nostalgic perspective: gone by memories and experiences emerge from the past. Time is deposited silently over  left objects, furniture and works of art. Neglected and forgotten, family memories that once took place. reverberate through light and color .

The Ruin of Memory series were realized in 2014 and have been exhibited internationally: Photo Fever during Paris Photo (2014); Photo London (2015); the Society for Photographic Education in Cleveland, OH (2015); and in China, within the context of the Lianzhou Photo Festival last December. Following this solo show in Houston, the works will be displayed at Blanca Berlin Gallery in Madrid, April 2016.
