Mexico City’s Lodos Gallery is hosting the latest exhibition from Renaud Jerez, titled Yesterday and running from August 29 to November 1.
The Berlin-based artist comes to Mexico for the first time with a new set of work, consisting of two sculptures made with CNC cut on isolation foam as well as a painting, showing once again that his affiliation with so-called post-internet art does nothing to curb his classical approach.
Curated by Dorothée Dupuis, the exhibition takes inspiration from Joseph Cornell’s experimental 1942 film, By Night with Torch and Spear, and Jerez explores the greater narratives promised by technology and the “increasingly schizophrenic relationship between the mass produced devices/images and the bodies that use and consume them”.
See the Lodos Gallery exhibition page for details. **
