Ignasi Aballí
Exhibition continues

Inauguration of the exhibition

Established in 2015, TWHH–The Whole Hole Hall has become one of the most secret underground venues in the city and has both, reflected and increased the awareness for contemporary art, architecture, design and alternative publishing. The initiators –product designer Curro Claret, curator Moritz Küng and MAIO architects (Maria Charneco, Alfredo Lérida, Guillermo López, Anna Puigjener)– are delighted to announce its third consecutive exhibition by the acclaimed artist Ignasi Aballí (Barcelona, 1958), after having hosted projects by the Belgium collective UP–Koenraad Dedobbeleer & Kris Kimpe in 2015 and the Brussels based Spanish artist Oriol Vilanova in 2016.

After his two major mid-career shows last year at the MNCARS–Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid and the Fundación Joan Miró in Barcelona, Ignasi Aballí conceived for THWW a new and site sensitive work entitled Exhibition continues. Within the given spatial context –a barely accessible space of only 3,3 m2 that programs only one exhibition a year– his tongue-in-cheek title and sparse intervention mutates in an ever lasting loop, that forces the viewer as well to become part of it. Once again Ignasi Aballí offers a conceptual reflection on the representation and perception of different mediums such as painting, the object, photography, fiction and even performance. And again his work invents and reorganizes texts, images, processes and spaces, exploring presence and absence, the material and immaterial, the visible and the invisible, appropriation and creation to relate the overabundance of images in modern-day society to the lack of meaning. Exhibition continues … as long as it last!

April 1st 2016 19:30h

Oriol Vilanova
Without Distinction

Artists’ book published by &: Christophe Daviet-Thery Book
launch and talk with the artist

After Act 1 and the very launch of TWHH – TheWholeHoleHall on April 1st 2015 with are delighted to announce exactly one year later Act 2, the presentation and exhibition of Oriol Vilanova’s latest artists’ book Without Distinction. This book – published by &: Christophe Daviet-Thery, Paris – contains a collection of images of empty showcases and vitrines that Vilanova presented on the occasion of his recent exhibition At First Sight at the Museum M in Leuven / Belgium (, March 8 to June 5, 2016).


Oriol Vilanova (born 1980 in Manresa, Barcelona / lives in Brussels) is interested in the political mechanisms for the construction of history and the gaze, and most of his works function as cabinets of curiosities. Following a working method centered on the recollection and documentation of images, Vilanova presents the work as an archive or encyclopaedia of visual documents offering a deconstruction of the unambiguous reading of the past. His work touches on themes such as success and triumph, the museum as an obsolete exhibition space, the icons of the past and the re-rewriting of history. He has produced installations, performances and theatre-performances, as well as posters, artist’s books and book interventions.

He published several books, among others:
No Middleman (2015, CRU-Editions, Figueres), Anything goes (2015, CRU-Editions, Figueres), Goodbye (2014, FRAC Champagne-Ardenne), Detesto el folklore oficial y organizado (2013, Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona), They Cannot Die (2011, JRP Ringier-Christoph Keller Editions, Zurich), La vie est dans la rue (2008, CRU-Editons, Figueres).

M van Museum Leuven (2016, Leuven), The Green Parrot (2015, Barcelona), l’Appartement22 (2014, Rabat), Centre d’Edition Contemporaine Genève (2014, Geneva), Fundació Joan Miró – Espai 13 (2013, Barcelona), FRAC Champagne-Ardenne (2012, Reims), Palais de Tokyo (2012, Paris), La Virreina Centre de la Imatge (2011, Barcelona).
