Rodrigo Hernández: Carrés
Curated by Nadja Quante
Künstlerhaus Bremen, Bremen
23 June – 3 September 2023

The artistic practice of Rodrigo Hernández (b. 1983 in Mexico City) moves between drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. His works reflect and negotiate the constitutive conditions and modes of perception of art and are usually influenced by literary, poetic or aesthetic texts. Over the years, he has developed his own unique set of characters and signs that continually appear and make new connections in his work. His color- and form-intensive installations and sculptures are constellations or compositions that do not develop a coherent narrative, but linger in the realm of the possible, the ambiguous, mysterious, and poetic.

The exhibition features a new work consisting of a modular wooden structure on which sculptural objects made of papier-mâché are sitting that can be moved by visitors. In a quiet manner, the relationship between sculpture and image, space and object, representing, seeing and moving bodies is explored here.
