Michael Fliri’s works recall a liquid and malleable concept of identity and reveal his interest in the things that lie in between, in the mouldable space of metamorphosis that is also the space of lack, understood not as a void but as an extremely creative moment that opens the porosity of the work to innovation, to the foreign, to the unknown. – F. Interlenghi, Stayinart, June 2021.
The Italian Cultural Institute of Madrid presents the first major Spanish retrospective dedicated to Michael Fliri (Tubre, 1978), ‘La luz nunca ve una sombra’ (Light Never Sees a Shadow), organized in collaboration with the Raffaella Cortese Gallery.
It is an important opportunity to explore the extensive body of work of one of the most interesting Italian artists of his generation. The exhibition presents a selection of more than twenty works, organized in three different thematic sections: Landscape, Identity and Light.
The exhibition is accompanied by a trilingual publication (in Italian, Spanish and English) featuring previously unpublished texts by Justin Hoover, Veit Loers and Letizia Ragaglia.
The exhibition is open to the public from 9 July to 30 September 2021, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 am to 8 pm (last admission at 7.30 pm), with special openings every Saturday in July. Admission to the exhibition is free.
