Andrea Rodriguez Vial
I am glad to announce Spring 2018 winner artists-in-residence: Yugo Kohrogi (Japan, 1982), Andrea Rodriguez Vial (Chile,1983) and Kevin Brophy (USA).
Andrea Rodriguez Vial is an installation-ceramic-sculptor who frequently models animals reflecting about plague, domestication, extinction, animal abuse and anthropocentrism concepts. During her residence she would like to create some ephemeral figures to include them in the local landscape. Andrea Rodriguez Vial Andrea Rodriguez Vial
Yugo Kohrogi is a skilled oil-painter who makes distorted, melted figurative women paintings: from sexual poses to scary portraits. I personally see something of Bacon, something of Suehiro Maruo in his paintings. He says he aims to put together primitiveness and modernity in a painting. He pretends to portrait a landscape with memory, where people and nature melt together. Yugo Kohrogi Yugo Kohrogi Yugo Kohrogi
Kevin Brophy is interested in topics which deal with issues of time, language, labor, craft and gender-tropes. For her stay at Calle Mayor 54, she has a project related with the American dream, where the artist will labor in multiple ways on different levels of production, platform, and privilege, while implicating other workers and systems of value.
