Adrián Villar Rojas

English €45

The first book to explore the fascinating career and fantasy-driven worlds created by the acclaimed Argentinean artist. This book includes all of Villar Rojas' most significant projects, featured in international biennials such as Venice, Documenta, Shanghai, and others.

Description

Adrián Villar Rojas's works concoct imaginary realms. Usually made from clay, his colossal installations are transitory and so cannot be collected, as they disappear or decay over time. His practice confronts the public with ideas of obsolescence and extinction, but also with the possibilities of humankind and its endless imagination.
