The exhibition presents the work of Juan Pérez Agirregoikoa (Donostia/San Sebastián, 1963). This artist, who has lived in Paris since the start of 1990, has been gradually building a body of work in which he aims his mordant barbs at ideology, religion, capitalism, education and culture, offering us his insightful and critical view of these and other subjects.

The title of the exhibition is an allusion to a timespan on an imaginary calendar, outside reality, that turns political and revolutionary anniversaries into a somewhat absurd ritual. The exhibition itself focuses on works made by Pérez Agirregoikoa in the last 15 years, while also featuring a number of his earlier pieces that have never been shown before or which the public are less familiar with.

Juan Pérez Agirregoikoa started his career as an artist with painting before going on to explore the possibilities of drawing and the publishing format. Following his fine arts studies between 1983 and 1988 at the University of the Basque Country faculty in Lejona, painting led him to a practice of the medium that was to a degree incredulous and far removed from heroism: ikurriñas (Basque flags) made up of small coloured stickers; geometrical paintings in the manner of Josef Albers cut in half; structures consisting of rhombuses imitating harlequins’ garb; and the like.
