Lapidario is composed of several bodies of work, derived from critical research processes in different disciplines, which have resulted in a set of poetic and propositive works. Drawing from the visual languages of science (botanical, astronomical, cartographic or geological), Regina de Miguel suggests the rethinking of the relationship between human beings and nature on the basis of the possibility of a restorative attitude from the awareness of the fragility shared by all forms of existence and from generosity. The title of the exhibition underlines the forcefulness of the artist’s intention, implicit in her proposal.


“The exhibition is a territory of territories. A linking of worlds and a speculative journey that, uniting the telluric with the cosmological, tries to appeal to the consciousness to produce a specific knowledge and a space between languages to evict unequivocal affirmations. Here, humans, animals, microorganisms, stones, and geological strata intertwine in a tentacular interior, using science fiction as a method of tracking and as a political tool that, together with the forensic and the oracular, seeks a dialogue between a federation of living and inert beings that relate in the otherness and the unthinkable, forming a binding frieze.”
