Between Forms of Representation and Interpretation

Eindhoven, NL

Onomatopee 49: Cabinet #5

The physics that establish new technological presences enable us to engage with them through various forms of translation and transference, unveiling a spectrum of novel and ever-expanding symbols and relationships. Informed by these processes and drawing inspiration from the histories of art, design, science, and technology, Andrés Ramírez Gaviria crafts compelling visual and auditory experiences. Through intricate investigations, he delves into concepts such as communication, interpretation, language, time, and space. His works explore geometric conceptions of reality, both past and present, and their perceived involvement in communicative states of disorder, as observed through their linguistic capacity. These explorations manifest in engaging ways, presenting aesthetically perplexing manifestations and playful contradictions.

The exhibition, curated by Freek Lomme, is presented within the framework of the Glow Festival, a forum dedicated to light in art and architecture. A catalogue surveying a selection of Andrés Ramírez Gaviria’s works and featuring textual contributions from curator Maria A. Iovino and Onomatopee director Freek Lomme is published to accompany the exhibition.
