Susy Gómez works have been created on the basis of a reflection on the identity. They have emerged from the wish to explore the intersection between art and spirituality, the social action and the identity. Her work express concern for the individual’s place in the contemporary world. She transforms and transmutes images from the real or from his media representation. Her works talks in a fragmented way, although not interrupted by the existence.

Susy Gomez’s artistic practice is structured around a central axis: The displace of the western monologic speech, white and masculine. She understands contemporary art in the representation field as a political revolution which in its turn constitutes the genealogy of what nowadays is her artistic language.

In this exhibition entitled METALLICA, Susy Gómez brings us back to a “Present Continuous” the history of one of her family works, the ones made in metal. This show features for the first time art pieces of all her artistic career; from the seminal sculptures like Corazón de oro, 1995, first exhibited at the Gallery Giorgio Persano in Torino, Ioni showed in 1997 at Toni Tapies Gallery in Barcelona, Mientras las manos llueven, featured in 1999 at the Gallery Soledad Lorenzo in Madrid, or Lingam exhibited as well in Toni Tapies Gallery in 2003, to a group of recent sculptures like Puerta Nº 1 y Puerta Nº2, 2018 as well as the dress sculptures installation that conforms a constellation and gives name to the Exhibition .

METALLICA is a “Happening”, a coming-into-presence, an event that induces the viewer to understands his vital baggage. An invitation to bring back the spiritual dimension to the physical body, that the western civilization, the patriarchal society and contemporary world has excluded. METALLICA it’s a call to regain the feminine beat in everyday life, to liberate the gender stereotypes where the masculine has been reduce to a cold rationality and to an objectified sexuality.
