C A M P O

BY FELIPE GUERRA
@ VOL 12 ON APR 16, 2015

"CAMPO" means countryside in Spanish. But also field. Yet, the project presented by Felipe Guerra is about an even broader meaning: it is about issues concerning both the contemporary arts and architecure, like space, how it's shaped and how it shapes us.

Tensión y precariedad

BY SANTIAGO REYES VILLAVECES
IN BOGOTA

Santiago Reyes Villaveces showcases his work, which, according to his own words, "responds to an inquiry, obsession, fascination, and pleasure for the structures, assemblages and dynamics that evidence the state of transitivity and precariousness that appeal to a state of temporal indetermination. The works —installations, sculpture, drawings and photographs— transform, determine, modify and interfere the space in which they operate; affect the way the spectator occupies and perceive the physical and social space where is the work".
