Adrián Villar Rojas

Adrián Villar Rojas Work from Expo 1: New York. “Adrián Villar Rojas’s La inocencia de los animales (The innocence of animals) is an immersive installation that resembles both an amphitheater of antiquity and a postapocalyptic cavern. Consisting of cracked, crumbling clay and concrete, the work points forward and backwards—seemingly to the very beginnings of civilization and its […]

Extreme Environments and Future Landscapes

  Extreme Environments and Future Landscapes “Finally back from the seven day expedition and research in Svalbard, where we received lectures by the municipality on Longyearbyen’s past and present , by LPO architects to understand the challenges of building on frozen (and now slowly melting) tundra, by UNIS, the university centre in Svalbard on the […]

DIS Magazine

DIS Magazine Work from DISimages “DIS Images marks a significant shift in the way artists approach stock photography. Onlines image databases proliferated in the early part of the last decade, and artists searched them and plundered them. Their aggregated findings reflected the multiplicity of potential meanings in both the images and the keywords that index […]

Catharine Maloney

Catharine Maloney Work from Teleplay Part I. Maloney’s works lack subtlety with the same mix  of self-awareness and self-deprecation that would permit one to wear a faux-star trek uniform constructed of a pastel turtleneck and what looks to be American cheese. This is the power of the work, it expertly capitalizes on the nostalgia driven zeitgeist that breeds the desire […]

Félix Luque Sánchez

Félix Luque Sánchez Work from The Discovery. “Chapter I: The Discovery is an impenetrable, geometric object and a series of videos restaging the moment of its discovery, as if it were a scene from a sci-fi movie, where the hero is suddenly confronted with an alien, slightly chilling figure. The videos are broadcast in the […]

Benjamin Phelan

Benjamin Phelan Work from his oeuvre. “I am easily blinded by the optimism embedded in a new process, as it first appears to be the universal solution.
