Motel Relax is a window through which we see all kinds of landscapes, both the everyday and the ethereal. This selection by Manolo Menéndez reminds us of silent places and empty spaces where a unique atmosphere can emerge. The stark aesthetic that rules his work is often followed by a disturbing sensation that unsettles us. There, in this concrete world, the barriers we impose on ourselves, and our longing for something that never comes are some of the core sentiments. The urban and the natural, the private and the public, are in constant tension. Human beings seem to belong to neither side, leaving us as an observer of images lacking human representation.
