On the occasion of the joint exhibition On Reality by Cristina Iglesias and Thomas Struth, Ivorypress presents Constructions of the Imagination, with an essay by senior Art History lecturer Estrella de Diego, who uses science fiction to link the work that Iglesias and Struth will show at the Ivorypress gallery from 28 May to 12 July. The publication includes images of the installations by Iglesias and the photographs by Struth that make up the show. It is an exhibition which, in the words of Estrella de Diego ‘raises the essential question of gaze, a subject that is directly applicable to the works of both artists: how should we judge what we see? To what extent is it being reconstructed by our memory or imagination? How can you turn reality on its head based on the story being told?’
