Mario Rodriguez “MAREO” is a multidisciplinary artist born in Mexico City in 1981, raised in Colombia and based in Barcelona.

His work explores the strength of topography and natural territory, conceived as a constantly moving energetic living mantle. Epidermal stratification forged by time, with an emerging telluric language, pressing, gravitating, revealing itself through the landscape.

“Matter is condensed light”.

Rodríguez seeks to cover different scales in his artistic approach. From the massiveness of mountains and rocks, through its process of settling and fragmentation to stone as the basic unit. Thus, He is interested in matter as a condensation of light and its process of transformation. Expanding energy over time, releasing weight to return to origin.

Exhibitions & publications.

He has had 16 individual exhibitions and participated in various art fairs and projects in North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.

​Several publications of his work have been made, among which 3 books stand out: “Expansion” published by the Italian gallery E3 contemporanea and Vanillaedizioni in 2018, self-published book “Matter is condensed light” 2020 and VC 03 presenting the exhibition “Portals” by Valletta Contemporary, Malta 2022.

Tony Hornecker is an internationally renowned artist and scenographer. His installations have been staged at institutions such as the Royal College of Art. The Royal Opera House and the Architecture Foundation in London. Her work incorporates a wide variety of mediums, from print to sculpture. Architecture and performance. Her love of found materials and how to take them, and taking the viewer on magical journeys in her imagination have won her work a loyal following.

Installation artist.

In recent years he has started to develop his career as an installation artist. Drawing inspiration from his turbulent childhood and later adventures in London. He put on some very intense and honest shows in his home and studio in Hackney. The studio itself becomes an attraction in its own right, a unique exhibition of the bowels of his soul. Abandoned sets and heaps of bric-a-brac, all lovingly arranged and displayed.

The Pale Blue Door.

In 2009, he opened The Pale Blue Door, a cabaret and dining experience installation staged among the many nooks and crannies of his elaborate home. It was to be a smash hit and continues to occasionally entertain to this day. His love of travel, his admiration for gypsies and the art of creating anything out of anything, took The Pale Blue Door as far away as Buenos Aires. Santiago. Berlin. Valparaiso and even the Glastonbury Festival.

Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata was born in 1953 in Japan. Tadashi Kawamata produces In Situ works all over the world. His favorite material is wood, beams and planks. It uses in facilities to alter our perception and experience of the sites. It is often about architectures, footbridges, bridges, raised passages which seem to be born from the place and which ask to be borrowed.

Recycling.

At the origin of his work, Tadashi Kawamata is interested in issues of urban planning. Construction or demolition sites. The intermediate zones remaining in the urban space are then reinvested by the artist. He uses the same materials from the site for his constructions, by “recycling” them. Time, as an indicator of the greatness or decline of a monument or site, is a key element of his work. The human and social dimension is also essential in the development of Tadashi Kawamata’s work.

The lost iron.

The technique that he masterfully developed in his xylography is that of “lost iron”. Her work contains symbols of social ills, ironically presented through a plethora of textured and explosive color patterns.

Over the years, Marta Pérez Garcia’s work has focused on gender-based violence and society’s blindness to it. In an effort to raise awareness, she turned to large multimedia installations involving local organizations. Arts communities and institutions. These installations and the workshops that lead to them help give a voice, a stage and a presence to survivors of gender-based violence who have lived and continue to live in silence. These projects seek to foster a cathartic and empowering dialogue so that, through art, the community moves from silent witness to active healer.

Anthea Hamilton (b. 1978) is a London-based artist whose current practice includes installation. sculpture and performance. His work is always site specific. A consideration of place and cultural and political environment as well as his personal circumstances at the time provide a framework for Hamilton’s research. Intuition then shapes ideas into an unspoken structure. Kimonos, chastity belts, boots, perfumes, furniture, mime troupes. Conversation and collaboration are also essential to how Hamilton works.

Objects and pictures.

Made up of a combination of objects and images, both found and made and anchored in a common experience of the world. The environments she produces are lively and conversational, both humorous and serious, both minimal and maximal.

Born in Italy in 1971, Paola Pivi’s artistic practice is diverse and enigmatic. Blending the familiar with the alien. Pivi often works with commonly identifiable objects that are altered to introduce a new scale. A new material or a new color, encouraging the public to change their point of view. Animals are often seen as protagonists in the world of Pivi. It builds on their perceived characteristics and instills human mannerisms in them.

Animals.

In Pivi’s art, polar bears practice yoga, hang from trapezes, and engage with each other. Sprouting multicolored feathers, the works are both life-size and miniaturized like baby bears. Covering sculpture, video, photography, performance and installation. Pivi’s practice goes beyond perceived limits to make possible what previously seemed impossible. Zebras frolic in the Arctic, goldfish fly in airplanes, and in his 2012 Public Art Fund installation, a Piper Seneca airplane was lifted on its wings and set up to constantly rotate forward.

Monika Sosnowska, best known for her enormous skeletal architectural forms. It harnesses the engineering gifts of these elements and the imperceptible grace of their designs. His sculptures of mutilated construction elements are not creative approximations of architecture. They are fabricated, deformed and reassembled construction elements. Sosnowska’s structures crumple like paper, bend and twist to the demands of historical time. Then, by the force of an ideological gravity. Sosnowska shows her ability to sublimate the traces of destruction, like an urban archaeologist in search of pages of history.

Malleable and fragile.

Support structures are malleable and fragile when removed from their context. Without foundation or hinge, they become without object. Intended to enclose us, to protect us and to assist us, they are the most revealing when they fail. A broken step does not go unnoticed. But something animates these truncated forms. Something ghostly resonates from the cold industrial material. The works recall something familiar, something known, but only in memory. Or maybe built from that. Sosnowska explores the shift in the viewer’s understanding of a work. The moment when reality gives way to another space, psychic or historical.
