Adrián Villar Rojas
Adrián Villar Rojas was born in 1980 in Argentina. He lives and works in Buenos Aires. He is represented by Marian Goodman gallery in New York and Kurimanzutto gallery in Mexico City.
Adrián Villar Rojas’ artistic production exists in an imaginary dimension where men face their obsolescence and eventual extinction, playing with perceptions of time and its representation in human culture. The artist uses aspects of drawing, sculpture, music, science fiction, and installation to create dream-like alternate realities that allude to an apocalyptic or mythological end of the world. Often working with clay, his installations are colossal and immersive, provoking sensations of unease with their embodiment of both physical and temporal immensity; the objects he creates seem at once timeless and ancient, relics from an ambiguous future or past that question our notions of time, history, and modernity.
