Ángel Pantoja, photography and collaging as weapons for social criticism

The Sevillian Ángel Pantoja cannot comprehend life without art, or art that doesn’t have some connection to real life. This artist uses digital technology to create images that encourage critique of human beings and our ways of life. The exhibition ‘Present Day Mythologies’ brings together his artistic work of the last few years. In the exhibition, Pantoja reflects on the enforcement of gender labels and the terrible consumerism that creates only a fake sense of happiness, and ventures into the simulation of a postapocalyptic world in which human beings are simply memories that manifest themselves through the remains of their consumer goods.
