Alejandro Almanza

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Ahead and beyond of everyone’s time, space and rhythm, 2009. Table, Silverware, chinaware, candles, cutlery, flowers, napkins, cups, vase, table top, chandeliers, disco ball.

Risk and Tension. It seems that Alejandro Almanza likes to keep viewers on their toes. Working mostly with construction materials and domestic interiors, Almanza creates situations of stress through sculpture and installations; a house of cards that precariously threatens to fall or break. Danger seems to be a constant in his work, as well as the exploration of materials and our perceptions of them. How can a set of light bulbs hold a cinderblock?

Steve Schepens

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Steve Schepens’ current exhibition at Galerie Van de Weghe in Antwerp is perhaps all too horrifying, but in a good way. It’s not meant to create the type of horror or disgust we find in genre films, but more the kind related to the impalpable; the object and its relationship to space, and the ways we perceive it. In fact, all of Schepens’ work is titled HORROR, with some additional subtitles or numbers, but why this insistence?[...]

Bobby Cruz and Carlos Rubio at Galería Yemayá

Artistic expression achieves its greatest freedom in the studio, a space devoid of curatorial parameters, where the artist dispenses with formal and rigid canons to play and experiment with different materials. In the exhibition Por la libre at Galería Yemayá, this artistic experimentation rooted in the studio is taken to the gallery for artists Bobby Cruz and Carlos Rubio, providing an unrestrained space for creativity and personal expression.[...]
