“Doble Espacio” (Double Space) Exhibition in the Museum of the Book of Burgos

Arqueología poéticaMarcos Mesa’s new visual-poetry exhibition (in photography format) is named “Poetic Archaeology”. This is an initiative, named “Doble Espacio” (Double Space), from the Museum of the Book “Fadrique de Basilea” of Burgos, consists of completing empty spaces of the museum with little micro-exhibitions from local artists. “Poetic Archaeology” is a sample of several pictures over aluminum and methacrylate; compositions made of “found” objects of metallic nature. This exhibition is an extension of the project “Metal Poems” which consists of poem/object photographs.

Marcos Mesa is a Fine Arts Graduate and Master in Graphic Design for Publishing applications, with specialization in Art Direction. His early steps in object photography took place in Barcelona, which led him to work for several years on commercial catalogue photography in a local studio devoted to industrial design.

Visual poetry is an artistic genre with Joan Brossa as forefather, though its origins could be traced back to earlier artistic movements like the Vanguardias, the Dadaism, and the Surrealism. Basically, it is based on the sleight of hand or the visual metaphor. Nowadays it is very common to find visual poems almost anywhere associated to the advertising industry.
