Tag: Damián Ortega

Mexican artist Damián Ortega (covered here) reconceptualizes everyday objects in his sculptural installations. For twenty years, his creative interests have lied in the deconstruction of form and how things are assembled. His solo exhibition at HangarBiocca in Milan, Italy, "Casino," is also a retrospective of his most famous works through today. This includes his new installation, "Zoom," made for the event. The experience of viewing his artwork has been described as "explosive," displaying a burst of energy, like an exploding star. Objects and vehicles such as his Volkswagon Bug, "Cosmic Thing," (2002) are transformed as a critique about technological innovation. See more after the jump.
