Hus Gallery

Santiago Taccetti @ Hus Gallery, Mar 25 – Apr 25

23 March 2015

Hus Gallery is bringing artist Santiago Taccetti to its London space for a solo exhibition titled ISO 9001, running from March 25 to April 25.

ISO 9001 is the first solo UK exhibition for the Berlin-based and Buenos Aires-born artist. Featuring new works from his white painting series, Taccetti attempts to eliminate all external visual cues from his pieces, using the fundamental properties of the materials as his guides. Their chemical composition, and their interaction with one another, are used as the parameters of the work, reducing the artist’s own agency and replacing it with that of the materials themselves.

With ISO 9001, Taccetti plays with the idea of certified quality management systems used by companies trying to prove the consistency of their products. “In this context”, the press release writes, “an ‘industry standard’ is reconsidered as an examination of the qualities which the art object must possess in order to pass the ‘International Organization for Standardization’.”
