Cara Gallery features Andrés Jaque

Relevant Notes is a collective exhibition that presents a dialogue between the work of 11 artists, among them Andrés Jaque, to explore the boundaries of disciplines among installation art, land art and architecture.

Exhibiting in a wide variety of medias including installation, drawing, photography, painting and sculpture –each created over the past five decades– act as relevant notes to the testimony of the artists’ interpretation of the concept of human intervention. Studying their sustainability in the natural environment, these artists take the location and materials of their work into careful consideration using cultural, political and environmental histories to create art as a catalyst for change.

Through their respective practices, the exhibiting artists have been analyzing the unification of materials, space and nature to address the importance of interference. If the balance between these elements were to be lost the intervention of the artist would be lost as well. The visual and conceptual investigations into the conjunction of these elements transform the architectural space of the gallery into an exhibition space where the artist is evident and a vision is perceived.
