PAOLO CHIASERA, LOUIS HENDERSON, JIMMY ROBERT, OSCAR SANTILLAN AT ALTOS DE CHAVÓN

Artists page

Paolo Chiasera

Artist, writer and curator Paolo Chiasera’s multi-disciplinary work, which spans painting, video, performance and installation, is primarily informed by the artist’s inquiry into historical images, myths and cultural icons. Chiasera’s work takes history as a starting point for a process of creative deconstruction and reconstruction, sourcing material from film, literature and philosophy as a way to reconstitute narratives and engage collective memories from the viewer.

Oscar Santillan

Santillan insinuates in his work the existence of a territory where fact and fiction are exchangeable. Unexpected events occur there, the beat of drums synchronizes to the sweat of a person, the unrealized desire of a dead person is fulfilled, a cloud is physically capture in a marble container, or a horse looks at his own reflection.

Louis Henderson

Filmmaker whose works investigate the connections between colonialism, technology, capitalism and history. A graduate of London College of Communication and Le Fresnoy – studio national des arts contemporains, Henderson is currently completing a post-diplôme within an experimental art and research group at the European School of Visual Arts, where his research seeks to formulate an archaeological method within film practice reflecting on the new materiality of the Internet.

Jimmy Robert

A graduate of Goldsmiths College in London, Robert is thoroughly conversant with the idioms of both Post-Minimalist sculpture and dance. For the flier of this show, the artist, a lithe man of color who often dances in his own works, had himself photographed with an Art Deco sculptural group, joining hands with one of three putti frolicking with a rampant goat.

Quisqueya Henriquez

Quisqueya Henriquez (b. 1966, Havana, Cuba) works across collage, print, video, installation, and sound and provokes conventions of race, ethnicity, and gender encountered in Caribbean and Latin cultures and practiced universally. Her work focuses on stereotypes originating in corporeal notions of beauty and athleticism, perpetuated by contemporary ideals of cognitive ability, economic achievement, political power, and art history. read more
