“Re Shaping Landscapes”
January 28 2020
The first VitrinaLab collective exhibition summoned twelve Chilean artists that live in Santiago to start in 2020. The spirit of the exhibition seeks to create a dialogue between the human figure and the collective imaginary.
Re Shaping Landscapes, is the name of the collective exhibition that VitrinaLab chose to start in 2020. The exhibition opened January 28th, and gathered twelve Chilean artists that live and work in Santiago. The selected pieces are built in different formats: sculpture, installation, video and painting. They engage in a dialogue on formal relationships, materials, besides a mix around the landscape and the human figure.
The works of Maite Izquierdo, Tatiana Lastarria, Felipe Lavín, Kira Piriz, Virginia Guilisasti, Guadalupe Valdes, David Corvalán, Hernán Gana, Pedro Tyler, Catalina Mena and Claudia Bitran live together and express themselves in a dialogue in this exhibition focused on the reflection of daily life and the way of thinking space.
All the artists, with their different techniques and formats, converge in the collective reflection about daily life. As an example, Kira Piriz, tells exterior and interior stories in which she highlights the actions that happen in each scene of her paintings, reflecting upon those daily facts unnoticed by the viewer. In turn, Felipe Lavín by means of digital photographs and videos tries to change the viewer’s perception of everyday places, at the same time he highlights them and takes them out of context to create new objects and elements.
This exhibition was sponsored by BCI Bank, an institution that within its general guidelines has the objective to promote the Chilean cultural heritage and support the internationalization of Chilean visual artists.
Moreover, its collaborative work with Vitrinalab contributes to give more visibility and promote the work of Chilean artists in the market of North American visual arts, especially in Miami.
