In the exhibition to open at the Palau Robert on March 1, the art director, producer and photographer Jaume de Laiguana selects 158 large-format photographs taken over the last 15 years to illustrate his professional career, works all infused with his personal vision of art and clear social engagement.
The show, entitled “Jaume de Laiguana. Photography Exhibition. Retrospective 1997-2012”, will be open to the public until May 26. Organised by the Government of Catalonia in cooperation with Barcelona City Council, the initiative is sponsored by COSMIC.
The photographs and accompanying videos illustrating de Laiguana’s approach to his work, reveal the talent, highly personal gaze and methods employed by this photographer who believes, not in perfection, but in the beauty of the imperfect.
The exhibition provides a broad retrospective in which Jaume de Laiguana presents his photographic works and the processes he uses to prepare and produce them, giving the spectator insight into his day-to-day procedures. Moreover, this show marks a turning-point in his trajectory as a photographer, as he begins to distance himself from advertising to focus on more artistic and personal photography, taking his first steps in the world of art.
Although much of Jaume de Laiguana’s work has its origins in advertising, it nevertheless has a life of its own. This is because one of this artist’s great strengths is the ability to turn commissioned pieces into authorial works by bringing his own, personal gaze to bear. De Laiguana’s work also includes other projects that focus on social problems, whose main goal is to make the spectator think.
The virtues of defects. The constant search for beauty in imperfection, accident or chance. Provocation. Non-conformity. Ceaseless work and learning. These are amongst the ingredients that characterise Jaume de Laiguana’s work, infusing it with an unmistakable, attractive and highly personal quality.
