“Reality is a very persistent illusion” is one of the Gold Sentences by artist Dora García, a collection of aphorisms based on common sense, but with a destabilizing role. The works presented in the offices of Cal Cego revolve around a common theme, representation and their displacements, blind spots or off screen which do not appear in the image, which escape from representation but at the same time is the essence of what is recorded.
