Ivan Argote, The Hidden Persuador, 212 x 194 x 50 cm, 2014
D+T Project Gallery is pleased to present a new solo show by Ivan Argote.
Sometimes described as behavioural activist, Argote investigates the field of social interactions. His works aim to single out aggressiveness, isolation, alienation and distrust that illustrate our contemporary society and overall fragility of its codes. At the same time, his humoristic approach tends to blur the limits between reality and fiction. By means of cross media practice that includes painting, sculpture, photography, film and performance brings him to question the status of an artwork at large.
Reddish Blue – his
second personal show at the gallery, features a project that deals with the notions
of history, transformation, hierarchy and power. Reddish Blue is inspired by an old photograph of Argote’s father who
used to teach young children how to become good activists. That specific
Kodachrome print changed colour over the years. For mysterious reasons, linked with
possible political issues, Kodak changed their policy in their printing
processes. Thus the theme of the show aims to explore that particular story. The
visitors will discover large sculptures, small objects,
projections, etc. absorbed by a purple veil. The exhibition presents a
new chapter in the artist’s work that relates to the story of protests,
museums, love, etc. Ivan ARGOTE (1983, Bogota) lives and works in Paris.
