Between Balance and Reflection is the first solo show of López-Aparicio in Málaga after his participation in the Pompidou, at the group show Hors Pistes. It is framed within his reflections on the nature of the human being in balance with himself and in his relationship with the community and the environment.
The action Inverted, learning to relate, internationally acclaimed, provides powerful images full of symbolism. More than two hundred people hung upside down in clusters have experienced their intensity. Together with these images there are sculptures and installations that expand and weave a solid discourse, questioning the established logics.

His projects try to encompass the instability of nature and of the humanity itself, in constant process of change, forcing us stopping for a moment to reflect on the futility of what surrounds and conditioned us.
