Rasmus Nilausen’s Parergon is a proposal for the “Catalan pavilion” centred in the exploration of the limits of painting and an obsessive and tireless search for the perfect painting. The construction of images that emerge from a process destined to make the invisible visible and cover-up, erase, modify or disrupt the surface of a canvas, a board or a wall systematically with the intent of allowing those small things, the accidents and errors to be considered according to the importance they have in the construction of an, evolutionary and imperfect, ever‐changing imagery. The show consists of a selection of works on canvas in addition to subtle interventions in the exhibition space.
