This catalog is published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Fantasmi di Primavera' by Alejandro Cardenas, on view at Palazzo Cavanis, Venice, from October 7 to November 26, 2023.

The show contextualizes a new body of work especially conceived for this occasion that merges, as always in his artistic research, a wide range of references borrowed from the history of art, science fiction, and Latin American literature.

'Fantasmi di Primavera' explores spiritual and fantastical subjects related to human interiority and cosmic landscapes, both inspired by Children of Memory (2023) - the third volume of a space saga by the British writer Adrian Tchaikovsky, and the experience of a non-objective, supernatural yet familiar world view taken from the tradition of magical realism, by authors like Jorge Luis Borges and Gabriel García Márquez.
