The Commands (switch between)
José León Cerrillo at Andréhn-Schiptjenko, Stockholm
August 20 – September 26, 2020
Using language, a system of meaning with inherent flaws and implied power structures, as a starting point and drawing from different sources (psychoanalytic theory, graphic ideologies, geometric abstraction) Cerrillo continues his exploration into the possibilities and contradictions of thinking about abstraction through a wide range of media, from printed posters to sculpture, installations and performance.
Cerrillo’s work is usually structured serially. This not only allows the work to be an ongoing investigation, an open set, but also admits for the possibility of a retroactive reading. Past scenarios can be reused and rethought. By changing its fixed status, past work becomes material for new work, new work that in turn has the possibility of affecting the way that the original work is understood. The future helping the past. The present exhibition consists of new work from two ongoing series, Poems and The Commands.
Poems began as a silkscreen series that compiled an alphabet of sorts from different symmetric letters and numbers, basic shapes and seemingly mathematical symbols. This alphabet allows for a particular graphic system of composition that, although unlimited in its combinations, limits forms to a specific archive. This applied logic is combined differently each time, allowing for mutable formats and media but always pointing to or making manifest the possibilities of meaning through repetition: the jolly jolt of interpretation as form. The series Poems have taken on different media in past projects: from silkscreen on glass, canvas, and marble to more sculptural solutions in concrete, wearable rain-proof jackets, or architectural outdoor pavilions. For this exhibition Poems have gone back to their origin as silkscreen on glass.
