Espai d’Art Pere Pruna (MDM) houses –from July 7th to Nov. 11th- the exhibition The Silence of the Pomegranates by Andrea Torres Balaguer, with around 30 photographies, some of them big size. The work of this Young Barcelonian artist is influenced by dreams and surrealism, exploring the relationship between femininity and nature by means of symbolism and the dream transcription technique. Inspired by references to magical surrealism and the theory of psychoanalysis, her images experiment with the conscious subconscious. While thinking about the scene-action concept, she creates works suggesting stories and invites the spectator to interpret them, seeking to experiment with the borders between reality and fiction.
