The Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum presents the exhibition of Noemi Iglesias Barrios Love Me Fast, seventh installment of the Kora program, curated by Rocío de la Villa, which every year presents an exhibition conceived from a gender perspective. On this occasion, the project revolves around the work of Noemi Iglesias Barrios (Langreo, 1987), with twenty pieces that dialogue with some paintings from the museum's collections and that are made in such diverse media as bronze , glass, video, photography and mainly porcelain. The exhibition has the collaboration of Las Rozas Village.

In Love Me Fast, which can be visited from January 29 to April 28, the Asturian artist tells us about romantic love in the age of social networks, a love idealized in a consumerist plan of happiness, confronted with the toxic relationships that often occur. The result is a series of pieces of great beauty that, at the same time, question what has been considered art and craft in the history of art, and currently in contemporary art in the 21st century.

Noemi Iglesias is one of the contemporary artists who have put ceramics and porcelain back at the center of the artistic system, both in fairs and biennials and in museum exhibitions. His interest in this millennial technique has led him to do, in a little more than a decade, numerous residencies in study centers in countries of different cultures, from Greece, the United Kingdom and Hungary, to China, Korea or Taiwan, achieving great mastery in its execution. The tenacity and patience required by learning and working processes with porcelain seem to be an antidote to the fast love that the artist analyzes, criticizes and judges relentlessly in his work.
