Xavier Solé is a visual artist who studies “Los Caprichos” of Francisco Goya and reviews them with a contemporary approach. In Goya’s series of 80 etchings, he dives into the deepest passions of human kind. A dreamlike story explained through wit: from politics to friendship, from religion to economy, from hunger to love.
Along with his study of “Los Caprichos”, Xavier Solé works on the concept of “nasty interactions” to shape his outputs. Through childish interfaces, he invites the audience to be part to the artwork and pushes them into enjoying something that could be considered as nasty, rude or violent. The “Goyesque” dark pleasures of humankind presented with a layer of innocence and playfulness.
