Jorge CABIESES

Liberaciones Simbólicas / [Symbolic Freedoms]


 

1st Floor Gallery

July 6 - September 1, 2017

 

It is by amplifying and multiplying the presence of geometric shapes through the generation of repeated patterns in a wide range of colors that Jorge Cabieses (Lima, 1979) constructs images that point to many cultural sources, from graphic design and signage to the rich cultural history of Peru. In Liberaciones Simbólicas, the artist presents a series of works in which images lose their identity to create friction between different visual components, tones and textures.

Manuel CALDERÓN

La caja vacía / [The Empty Box]


 

2nd Floor Gallery

July 6 - September 1, 2017

 

The concept of order seems to be related to structuring images that normally possess geometric harmony. Many of these images are rooted in the everyday life of contemporary people and set a series of parameters that we are sometimes little aware of due to our dependence on the structures of order for orientation and meaning. From childhood, grid sheets begin to support the linear nature of writing as a subtle instruction that makes us participate in a social mechanism based on this rigid and repetitive geometric composition: the grid, an image of order par excellence for man. Schedules, calendars, plans and maps are some of the schematic conventions on which the human experience unfolds that are based on grid structures.

Marco MOJICA

Cocktail Clothes


 

2nd Floor Gallery

July 6 - September 1, 2017

 

The work of Marco Mojica (Barranquilla, 1976) is the result of a juxtaposition of images and meanings capable of creating a disturbing and ironic tension in the interpretation of its contents. The sources used by the artist to recreate his works include fashion magazines, art magazines, picture books, Internet logs, videos and even photocopies. In that sense appropriation, understood as a plastic strategy, becomes an effective tool that allows the artist to tackle issues as relevant in contemporary art as the concept of originality.

Cynthia LOPEZ

Eva / (Eve)


 

Space Project

July 6 - September 1, 2017

 

The relationship between Cynthia López (Cali, 1989) and her artistic practice positions her in a place parallel to ritual practice, that essential action that connects her with sacred experience. It is precisely for this reason that the artist’s work cannot be seen as disconnected from the context of her own existence and her thoughts in this regard. In that sense, this exhibition emerges as a visual response to the question of her female lineage, life transmitted from womb to womb, of blessings and inherited sorrows from that first conception of the original woman: Eve.

“Estudios”   Space Project May 20 – June 30, 2017 Luis Caballero (Bogota, 1943 – 1995) studied Fine Arts at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá and later at the La Grande Chaumière Academy of Painting in Paris, where he lived from 1963 until his death in 1995 in Bogotá.

It was thus that the body became the central theme of his entire work to which he was fully...

Ana Mercedes HOYOS

Geometrías Figurativas


 

Gallery

March 15 to April 28, 2017

 

There are many components present in the work of Ana Mercedes Hoyos representing the ways in which she addressed her plastic concerns throughout her artistic career. Although it is possible to think that her work is divided into periods, witnessing it together as a whole makes it possible to understand that the artist’s interest was always aimed at the exploration of three elements: geometry, light and color.

Some Economies


 

Space Project

March 15 to April 28, 2017

 

There are many well-known stories of ships that crossed the ocean in ancient times without using sophisticated technologies to guide them. Then it seemed that the sky and rudimentary compasses were the only instruments available for leading exploratory journeys or economic exchanges. Navigators like Marco Polo ventured in search of the wonders of the world in perilous voyages that uncovered new commercial and cultural routes. Nowadays, with GPS technologies or satellite location devices, it seems that defining the paths through which we travel is too simple. However, this guarantee of location and constant communication is ineffective against the adversities of nature.

Space Project

February 4 to March 4 , 2017

 

Fernando García Vásquez’s work is characterized by the use of diverse techniques, such as painting, collage, assemblies, sculpture and installations. His work is committed to the Colombian historical and social reality, using hybridization with an anthropophagic approach through which he interacts and appropriates images extracted from the history of art and places them in the specific reality of hazardous, everyday life in Colombia.
