Madrid’s Atocha station was formerly known as Mediodía (Midday), as it was the city’s Southbound railway hub. This is the location where David Hornillos worked between 2011 and 2014, during the central hours of the day.
Mediodía presents an enveloping world of orange brick bathed in a vibrant light that irresistibly draws in and traps all living beings like a dragnet.
With the colour orange in a leading role, David’s work faces the viewer against this brick wall, drawing him into the atmosphere of a stifling and hypnotic mental state.
