It is with great pleasure that we announce the gallery’s first exhibition with renowned Mexican artist Martín Soto Climent. The opening takes place in presence of the artist on March 5 between 6-8 pm.
Soto Climent is well known for his surrealist manipulation of images and objects. His practice refers to the forms of the body and the psychology of desire embedded within an economy of consumption. By re-contextualising ever so slightly and executing delicate re-arrangements by ways of appropriation and juxtaposition his works often have the humble quality of the ready-made or appear to be fragile assemblages exploring issues of temporality, desire, decay and marginality. Soto Climent creates objects, installations, sculptures and photographs sourcing materials and imagery from the quotidian and his interventions into everyday objects are occasionally temporary.
The concept of folds is central to the artist’s practice and his work is highly adept at drawing out libidinous subtleties of images and objects using minimal gestures. Soto Climent’s work aims to seek, unleash and share the invisible energy, already present. Reminiscent of conceptual art strategies like appropriation or juxtaposition, his works are the result of slight re-contextualization and delicate rearrangement. Read more…
