Descripción de la Exposición

In the exhibition Expanded Photography 2002–2018, Galerie Springer Berlin is showing three different work cycles by the Basque artist Aitor Ortiz in which traditional photographic boundaries are surpassed in surprising and fascinating ways. The highlight of the exhibition is the presentation of works from the related series Vicinay and Link (2018). Vicinay is a chain factory in the former industrial area of Zorrotzaurre in Bilbao. The manufacturing plant, which produced a total of 10,000km of ship-mooring chains over a 60-year period, was moved to a new location as a result of urban-development measures and gentrification. Ortiz, who grew up in the vicinity of the industrial site and has been based there via his studio for many years, had parts of the steel floor panels in the former manufacturing plant removed piece-by-piece, involving extensive effort. These heavy steel plates are characterised by distortions, folds and scars resulting from decades of pulling kilometres of extremely heavy, hot chains. The steel plates from Vicinay, which are being shown in the exhibition in the original (100 x 100cm), are therefore prints or impressions in the wider sense of the words.
