Showcasing around one hundred and fifty works, the exhibition is conceived as an immersive journey through the artistry of Coco Capitán. You probably already know her for her ongoing collaboration with Alessandro Michele at Gucci, nonetheless, the twenty-seven-year-old artist has been in touch with a camera since the age of seven and became involved in the world of fashion at an early stage of her career. Her art practice stands out for blurring the line between the fine art and the commercial worlds. Capitán masterly implements a wide range of genres that include photography, painting, mural, text, video and installation with a unique sense of honesty and freedom.
By combining intimacy and playfulness with a subtle social critique, the Sevilla-born artist marks a change in thinking. Her photographs and paintings adopt an innate understanding of form while disclosing her sincere statements culturally relevant to the times we live in today. Reflecting her sensitivity to contemporary social issues and in the representation and perception of the body, Busy Living displays many series that provide an insight into the scope of Coco’s body of work.
Art and Commerce after the Big Pop, a series that in particular focuses on Coca-Cola cans, reveals the artist’s critique of consumer society while reflecting a close kinship with the Pop Art movement at the same time. On the other hand, her Fashion Without the Fashion series is an essential part of the show, that offers a fresh and thoughtful perspective on the familiar manners of fashion imagery.
