Cartografías para navegantes de tierra, Michel Rein Gallery

April 5 – May 24, 2014 CARTOGRAFÍAS PARA NAVEGANTES DE TIERRA Hoist the sails Enrique Ramírez’ work lies in the gap where fiction and reality mutually enrich each other. Through metaphorical means, the artist questions our world and its migratory flows. His various approaches verge on ethnography and sociology. Fuelled by his findings of accounts of identity, cultural divisions, the conception of death, he produces films and installations within a poetic atmosphere. The artist speaks to us of historical events, navigates from mythology to daily events, and opts for the fictional tale, therefore transforming the assumption of a sociological study. The works on display at the exhibition Cartographies pour marins sur terre (Cartographies for sailors on land) by Enrique Ramírez result from his approaches and his explorations. As would a cartographer, the artist demonstrates on different supports a space; the sea. This space, held as real, is treated as a metaphor here. Effectively, further to […]

As Merleau-Ponty suggests, often the drive of art is to make visible what is often unseen, overlooked or under-appreciated. Such fundamental views though find additional expression in strategies of secrecy, camouflage, dematerialization and covert occupation, reminding of the tensions inherent to visibility. At times when the freedoms of expression central to artistic work come into conflict with prevailing ideologies, invisibility may become a question of survival. By the same token, in the case of Magic Block, we […]

Video Brasil, honorable mention for Breezes

In a long shot, the artist walks past the governmental palace La Moneda, the stage for the military coup that ousted and murdered the Chilean president Salvador Allende in 1973. A voiceover evokes memories of the author’s childhood, mixing the terror of the dictatorship with the sense of protection of being in his mother’s arms. Filmed in the opposite direction to the route permitted to visitors, the walker’s defiance becomes a metaphor for the subversive potential of revisiting a political history steeped in crime and lies. By taking back this public space, the artist raises the notion of collectivity as the prerequisite for any city. see more
