Artist: Montez Magno
October 3 – November 8, 2014
Christinger de Mayo
This exhibition brings a selection of Montez Magno works that developed his entropic impulse, broadly rooted in a sensitive and experimental dimension of spatiality. (…) Thus, more interested in invention, in the force of creation not only as an act, but rather as a constant exercise, Montez Magno rearranges materials as diverse and ordinary as a bar of soap, a watercolour pen or screws, constituting a centrifugal, variable oeuvre open to the other that – unconcerned with “structuring the world” in a universal spatiality (whether cosmological or cosmogonical) – is inclined, in turn, to create small, ephemeral and punctual arrangements which, in response to all variety of political and sensitive contexts, nonetheless have the power to make inventors out of all of us.
