Vienna_Groundfloor: JAVIER PÉREZ - Vida

(Thursday) (Saturday)

The spanish artist Javier Pérez" href="index.php?page=artist_id&id=4682">Javier Pérez shows his new works at Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art Vienna (Weihburggasse 26). This exhibition focuses on the intimate connection between live and death.

 

The body is central in the works by Javier Pérez" href="index.php?page=artist_id&id=4682">Javier Pérez. Detached from the strongly gendered approach to the body in contemporary art, Pérez gives the body a different meaning: in his performances, drawings, photography and sculpture it is illuminated as a distorted, strong and at the same time fragile mass.
Pérez´ view is focused on the fascniating features of the human body that couldn´t be more contradictory:human skin is extremely sensitive and fragile, however at the same time it has the strength to control the body´s powerful mass, the fine and complex network of blood vessels providing the entire organism with essential substances. In the tradition of Borges, the mortality and metamorphosis of the body are central to his works.
The use of materials such as latex, artificial resin, glass, steel, animal hair or plant parts underlines the contradictory positions of stability/fragility, inside/outside, attraction/rejection.
