Adrián Villar Rojas, The Theater of Disappearance

English/German €50 Unavailable

Considerations of loss and sensation, of transience and death lend Adrián Villar Rojasʼ monumental sculptures a tangible and comprehensible presence.

Description

Through his work, Adrián Villar Rojas interrupts the status quo of artistic practice and behaviour within a museum, a site of cultural heritage, a rooftop or public space. The colossal-scale works produced especially for the "Maison Imaginaire" exhibited at the Kunsthaus Bregenz open the stage for Rojasʼ Theater of Disappearance. This beautiful exhibition catalogue documents and preserves the site specific presentation - from the initial designs, through the process of installation, to the final display.
