The name of the exhibition, Katathlón, is a mixture of two words, both derived from the Greek: katastrophe, that means ruin, destruction -and pentatlon-, the athletic contest consisting of five parts. The first term refers, on one hand to the question of the Greek crisis and, on the other, to the costly and convoluted process of investigation carried out by the artist for this project.
I can not resist mentioning that one of the alternative options exhibition was to scatter all the pieces on the gallery floor, showing the chaos that he had reached and highlighting the unexpected, factor that flies over the entire show. The five videos are the key pieces of the exhibition. Performance and the absurd, both characteristics of Crespo’s work, come together in this impeccable show.
