Adriana Lara — Scryyns and Interesting Theories
Scryyns and Interesting Theories
Past: January 27 → March 3, 2012
Adriana Lara’s work steps in before the very appearance of the picture, at the screen level. Pure structures in which the content must, more than ever, be kept inside, the artist litterally making use of their projective dimension. She assumes the materiality of the screen as the ground of the work: without any message, in a process of deformation, the medium becomes another medium. The screen is presented as an image, but it is also stretched from its confusion with the flatness of the wall to it becoming a sculpture. The screen’s function as a window to any possible time, public or personal space is in this work conceived as a curtain. Although transparent, it belongs to the foreground, in between us and an infinity of information- the world.
At the other end of the field of existence of the medium, the artist shows « plasma paintings » picking up graphs made according to « interesting theories » : groundless representations, signs without referents, pure messages.
Adriana Lara ( born in 1978) lives and works in Mexico City. Her works have been on show at Gaga Fine Arts in Mexico, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts in Salt Lake, the Basel Kunsthalle, the Palais de Tokyo, and the Galeria Comercial Puerto Rico… She founded Perros Negros, a curatorial project with Fernando Mesta as well as Lasser Moderna, a musical project with Emilio Acevedo.
