Continua a leggere
Iván Navarro (b. 1972) uses light as his raw material, turning objects into electric sculptures and transforming the exhibition space by means of visual interplay. This unprecedented monograph, born from a collaboration between Skira and Galerie Templon, focuses on political and social critique, a major subject in Navarro’s work, and aims to show the essential role played by both the public space and visitors in the perception of these artworks. Richly illustrated, the book includes three original texts, including a conversation between Iván Navarro’s and fellow-Chilean artistAlfredo Jaar as well as with world-acclaimed architect Dominique Perrault. José-Manuel Gonçalvès is director of Centquatre-Paris and co-director of Grand Paris Express’ artistic/cultural projects. Alfredo Jaar has developed an internationally acclaimed body of photographic, cinematographic and installation work. Pablo León de la Barra is chief curator at Museu de Arte Contemporanea Niteroi, Brazil.
