Fotografia a Catalunya



The photographic perspective in the work of Àngels Ribé

The work of Àngels Ribé (Barcelona, 1943) is essential for an understanding of contemporary conceptual art as part of its international panorama. We consider her to be a pioneer whose work extends from photography to performance, from installation to sculpture. She has a constant sense of space, shape, and an understanding of the world through her own body. The role of photography has been of great importance in the development of her work, used as a witness and the main register of her actions and performances, and also as an instrument of her gaze, silently capturing the setting's imperceptible details, or methodically registering her walk, her body, space and the shapes surrounding her, to reveal a grammar of fragility of fleeting moments in the face of the "masculine hierarchy of perpetuity"
