Press release

In his new show titled RAVINE 23, the Chilean artist Alejandro Cardenas takes us on a journey where he critically expands on his signature subject matter: The avoidance of overdetermination on the basis of a single meaning, movement, or style. In his delicate crafting of apparently intimate scenes inhabited by humanoid beings, Cardenas presents us with a new body of work that is eerily familiar as well as visually provocative. As in previous projects, Cardenas thinks through possibilities of working with space as a symbol, and, in this specific case, of the ravine as the background of a narrative on resilience and creativity.
