ABSTRACCIÓN


Gallery

October 24 - November 23, 2017

 

The Abstracción [Abstraction] collective exhibition features works by 15 Brazilian artists living in the city of São Paulo, and includes photographs, paintings, sculptures, objects, videos, drawings and watercolor paintings. This project is born through the participation of the artists themselves, the definition of the concept of the exhibition and the selection of each of the works to be exhibited. Abstracción came to be at the meetings held at Ateliê Fidalga, a proposal focused on the reflection on the different possibilities of understanding abstraction. Each artist has developed a project to encourage dialogue and expand the concept of abstraction, taking into account the tradition and influence of this movement in contemporary art and, above all, in Brazilian art.

Sebastían DÁVILA

Monólogos / "Monologues"


 

1st Floor gallery

September 13 - October 18, 2017

 

The difference between a presentation and a representation is that the presentation is done on its own and representation is done in the name of another. This is why the sculptures of Sebastián Dávila (Bogota, 1981) are not models of a space conceived in another dimension but rather their dimension is presented by each work, and what makes them so remarkable is that they invite the spectator to imagine his or herself inside, experiencing the tensions arising from the materials, the chairs, the stairs and the concrete shapes that give rise to questions that must be answered by each observer according to his/her own imagination.

"Doméstico alterado " / "Altered Domestic"


 

2nd Floor Gallery

September 13 - October 18, 2017

 

In Doméstico Alterado, Vicky Neumann (Barranquilla, 1963), appropriates classic works of art history such as Goya’s Tapestry Cartoons (1775-1792), Bartolomeo Cavarozzi’s Holy Family (1619) and Caravaggio’s Saint John the Baptist (1609) with the purpose of intervening and re-interpreting them through the use of collage, the stitch as a stroke, photography and paint waste brought together by chance to create different versions of the same image, as if it were a moving scene.

Edwin MONSALVE

"Geodesia" / "Geodesy"


 

Space Project

September 13 - October 18, 2017

 

Through my work I propose a reflection on the notions of beauty and representation. When I represent nature, I break with the traditional configuration because I trigger associations that go beyond mimetic form, giving way to the disappearance of shapes and leaving only, in some cases, an invisible presence.

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.

Carlos ROJAS

“20 Años despues”   Gallery May 20 – June 30, 2017 Carlos Rojas (Facatativá 1933 – Bogotá 1997) was one of the central figures of abstract art in Colombia and one of the artists who defined the course of abstraction in Latin America. Between 1953 and 1954 he studied architecture at Universidad Javeriana of Bogotá and Fine Arts at Universidad Nacional and later at the School of Fine Arts in Rome, after winning a scholarship in 1958.   Once his scholarship ended, Rojas decided to return to Colombia along...
