Abstraction in Action Jorge Pedro Núñez: Entre Machine et moi Machin https://abstractioninaction.com/happenings/jorge-pedro-nunez-entre-machine-et-moi-machin/


Artist: Jorge Pedro Núñez

Entre Machine et moi Machin
September 12 – October 26, 2014
Galerie Crèvecoeur
Paris, France

The artist presents an abstract landscape, between sculpture and in-situ installation, composed by geometric figures human-scale based, featuring machine and motor. Symbols of the modern era defined by “the cult of the rapid combustion”, according to Peter Sloterdijk, motor and machine are still characteristic of the contemporary economy, even though the digital world, both in a real and fantasy process, is overwhelming. He uses standards materials of our developed environment like metal, glass, plaster and oil, combines heterogeneous logicals and creates an itinerary dividing, in an invisible way, the space. By creating a situation which tends to modify our gathering and our wandering, the artist follows his reflexions about the reception of the art forms, the display of existing objects and history of surfaces and materials. The theme of the machine, and its anthropomorphic projections, is in the title of the show, ironically reminded by the artist, quoting Serge Gainsbourg, author of Machins Choses, a 1965 song.

I am interested in combining and juxtaposing different historical referents that derive from diverse places and times, and which coexist in an object.

My work is related to drawing, sculpture, and painting rom their more basic properties, such as material and form, but the materials I use are mostly objects from other activities. I use recognizable icons stemming from modern art history, in the creation of a work that goes through deconstruction and the relationship of objects and ideas that question the link between abstraction, history, and contemporaneity.


Estoy interesado en mezclar y superponer diferentes referentes históricos que provienen de lugares y épocas distintas que cohabitan en un objeto.

Mi trabajo es relativo al dibujo, la escultura y la pintura desde sus propiedades más elementales como el material y la forma, pero los materiales que utilizo son en gran parte objetos de otras actividades. Utilizo iconos reconocibles provenientes de la historia del arte moderno  para la concepción de una obra que pasa por la deconstrucción y la puesta en relación de objetos e ideas que cuestionan la relación entre abstracción, historia y contemporaneidad.
