"The stallion handler and other symptoms" brings together Núria Güell's four most recent productions, three of which have been created especially for this exhibition. When it comes to defining the nexus between the works in this collection, we might say that they all strive to show consequences, symptoms that make us reflect, seeking out the causes.


Attending to the cause is what enables is to denaturalise the phenomenon, to refuse to admit ethically questionable matters as normal and inevitable. But communities tend to naturalise their constituent parts.


The works in this exhibition reflect on power, the patriarchy and identities. In parallel, they analyse three classic art history themes: the female body, the equestrian genre and religious iconography.
