‘Res no passa dues vegades’ is a book by Israel Ariño consisting of two leporellos, which offer different possibilities of fruition, from simultaneous leafing through to multiple achievable combinations of images. This formal choice reflects the artist’s poetics: “By means of photography he subverts the real: he doesn’t photograph the world for what it is but for what it conceals. This is what pervades his oeuvre — for him, photography isn’t a reflection of reality, it transcends reality” (from the text by Caroline Bénichou).
The title of this work, ‘Nothing Happens Twice,’ evokes the mythology of the decisive moment, the photographic kairos that allows for a better understanding of the moments before and after, unlike Ariño’s work. Here, in fact, there is nothing urgent or immediate, there are no allusions to events or reality, much less truth: these are correspondences and references.

This book was published on the occasion of Israel Ariño’s exhibition ‘Res no passa dues vegades’ at the Museu de l’Empordà in Figueres, Girona, 2024.
