(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
The Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro holds the exhibition “Mutações” [“Mutations”] with works by Argentinian artist Matías Duville. The show is curated by Santiago G. Navarro.
The exhibition “Mutações” [“Mutations”] establishes a route through the works by Argentinian artist Matías Duville (Buenos Aires, 1974) from images-ideas that, according to curator Santiago G. Navarro, structure the entire show: mutation, shelter, storm and imaginary. A selection of over 100 drawings, paintings and objects made by the artist between 2002 and 2015 offers a complex and extensive perspective of the ideas that permeate the exhibition. Distinct dimensions of the subjective, apparently absent, are translated to figures of space, body and object are present in Duville’s oeuvre.
Landscape images, objects interfering on the scenery (or on empty spaces), architectural and engineer structures, shifting shapes, observation situations, that can be understood as a specialty in a peculiar point of view over unstable territories that impact in our present emotions and affections.
With Adrián Villar Rojas, Eduardo Navarro, Eduardo Basualdo, Diego Bianchi, Pablo Acinelli, Tomás Espina and Leandro Tartaglia, among others, Duville is part of an Argentinian artists generation that were highlighted from 2000’s first decade and regularly features exhibitions in Brazil.
