I interviewed some gallerists, and I have to admit some of them were scared to answer the golden question “what is art?” but there was a particular answer that caught my attention, Dean Martin from Dean Gallery answered “Art is something that’s a challenge, it’s something you look at, you think about, and discover different narratives”. I agree completely, art should be something with a narrative discourse, a specific purpose which will challenge our senses in multiple ways and produce an unpredictable reaction.
Here are some of my favourite artworks.
My personal favourite, the interventions of Adrían Villar Rojas, it was an entire bibliotheque of intervened books.
When I saw this i almost screamed, Erwin Olaf is one of my favourite photographers! The picture is amazing, the palette of colors, the model direction, the art direction, everything!
This neon work of art remembered me of NeonDelirium, he loveeees neon!
Me, photographing a broken mirror. I promise I will post the gallerists’ interviews along with all the pictures soon, i need to make a documentary/audiovisual of it. Meanwhile hope you like this little insight to one of my favourites art exhibitions. I will be in Zona Maco 2011 definitely!
