Jorge MAGYAROFF

“Oxímoron / Oxymoron”   Unique Works September 15 to October 15, 2016 An encounter with Jorge Magyaroff’s artwork (Bogotá, Colombia, 1979) is like being in front of a thin line drawn between the accidental and incidental. It moves us to contemplate the beautiful presence of an involuntary mistake that seems to have been left like an event on pause. But when seeing Magyaroff’s series as a whole, we discover that what in a single piece appears to be a wonderful encounter of serendipity is collectively revealed as...

TRANSLOCACIONES

 

Gallery

July 28 to September 8, 2016

 

In an era where a rapid and incalculable stream of images is overflowing social networks and where the viewer is using the photographic apparatus (formerly known as a camera) instinctively and almost unconsciously by eliminating the act of looking, it is important to stop and reflect on the position of photography in relation to contemporary art practices. Although the basics of photography have been restructured with scientific developments, such as with the emergence of color photography and snapshots or more drastically with scanning and data transmission, artists no longer only use the medium as a way to capture photographs as evidence or documentation, but rather as a tool for creating images.

Leonardo RAMOS

 

Project Space

July 28 - September 5, 2016

 

When art and science displace religion as a source of spiritual effort, the figures who profess this new spirit become avant-garde artists and scientists by transforming the world. In these spiritual movements towards science and the arts, we can establish the relationship between the One and the many. Within this approach, the unit is the center.

Geometría y Abstracción

 

Gallery

May 19 - june 17, 2016

 

In the early twentieth century, Abstraction in Europe had become the alternative tradition in painting and sculpture as a response to the expansion of Realism. Wanting to represent the world in a mimetic manner was no longer a fundamental search in art and it was believed, rather, that art should build an autonomous visual language highlighting chromatic, formal and structural aspects.

Carlos SALAZAR ARENAS

"Filatelia y numismática"

 

Espacio Proyectos

May 19 - june 17, 2016

 

Carlos Salazar Arenas (Bogotá, 1973) takes images from the media, transforms them and gives them new meanings. Thanks to both digital media and physical distribution, Salazar has built over time a personal archive of images drawn from reality, marked by a few specific events that have affected the international and local scenes. In his most recent project entitled Filatelia y numismática, Salazar returns to a personal hobby that dates back to his childhood: collecting coins, bills and stamps.

"El silencio del color"

 

1st Floor Gallery

April 14 - May 13, 2016

 

Why do I paint? Since I ran out of words and am always perplexed at this life that amazes me, for me, painting is a way to live twice.   If words are pure existentialism, painting is urgency: the silent word. What there is to say has no name or image. This is what forces me; I mean, for me painting is the petrification of pure subjectivity, of what no longer is, of what was. Camus's words when he said "to create it is to live twice” can be clearly understood here.

María Cristina CORTES

"Desmadre"

 

2nd Floor Gallery

April 14 - May 13, 2016

 

Since the beginning of her career, Maria Cristina Cortes has dealt with the subject of landscape and has been addressing the destruction of nature at the hands of man for a while. Already in Chambas (1998 - 2001), there were floating objects in her paintings in sometimes murky and polluted water. In more recent works such as Rastrojal (2008) and Quebrantos (2010), half-burned logs and charred tree trunks have also made an appearance.

Sebastián CAMACHO

"c a p a s"

 

Project Space

April 14 - May 13, 2016

 

There has been a layered thought since the invention of bound books: to access information that is assumed as continuous we must turn each sheet, one after another, to generate a complete image that is spread on each page. Unlike papyrus, which involves a continuum of reading to the right or left on the roll, the book maintains one unit in each sheet, devoid of all meaning without its kin. Or rather, the partiality of each of the sheets in relation to the story as a whole makes us think that a page of a book is always both fragment and whole, depending on how it is read. In recent years, this situation has changed dramatically with the invention of the Internet because of the transformation of forms of reading which also work as layers of information discontinuously depending on the relationship that the user has with the platform. An Internet search, either by text or image (still or moving), implies the recognition of a code other than a book because the notion of what comes first and what comes after has a different relationship with "depth" even though it retains the conventions of reading (what is ahead is always later).
