Statement

Constructed realities form the core of Rodrigo Red’s practice: his exploration begins with phenomenological approaches related to how humankind makes cognitive processes and creates knowledge, non-verbal languages, and ideologies that fuse with social and subjective fabrications. Red’s oeuvre embodies objects observed in the perceptible world and how they shift, mutate or change position, taking into account their immersive character in space and their eye-catching/aesthetic qualities, such as the intensity of their shape, texture, color and dynamic forms.

Through sculpture, installation and photography, Rodrigo’s work seeks to blurry dimensions and topologies: He attempts to reach and mix different spheres of existences in a deconstructive manner, creating a space for imagination and possibility while using speculation and exploring poetic forms. Taking the relationship between image and idea as a standpoint, I delve into shared meanings and bridges created between the abstract and the concrete, analysing how they intertwine. However, rather than just thinking of established dichotomies, my work tries to suspend and create ruptures in order to move between ideology and experience, the subjective and the objective, the constructed and the real.
