23 Oct DIEGO PÉREZ
Diego Pérez García (CDMX, 1975) is a multidisciplinary visual artist who began his career in photography, although stone sculptures have been the center of his practice in recent years and now, sand, which makes us reflect that we are a small moment on the timeline. This practice results from a combination of gardening, models and stone carving of different colors, textures and materials.
For Diego to imagine and daydream is vital, since he considers both a trigger for the creative act. He constantly searches for that limit that divides art from other types of objects, convinced that all material is an endless source of forms whose relationships do not end in the work, but extend to the environment and the viewer.
His individual exhibitions include Pasatiempo, in collaboration with Iván Krassoievitch, Galería Machete (2015); Nuestra casa sería un campamento, Museo Experimental El Eco (2013); Lo lejano hace señas a lo lejano, Sala de Proyectos Gamboa del Museo de Arte Moderno, Ciudad de México (2010); Sombra de sol, Künstlerresidenz Blumen, Leipzig, Alemania (2008); Topografía Próxima, Centro Fotográfico Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Oaxaca (2006) y Sólo para el viento existen las hojas de los árboles, Celda Contemporánea (2006). His work has been shown in various group exhibitions at the Juan José Arreola Lake House, Luis Adelantado Gallery, kurimanzutto, Jumex Collection, Carrillo Gil Art Museum and Contemporary Art University Museum. He has participated in artistic residencies in Germany, Canada and the United States. He was a beneficiary of the Bancomer-MACG Arte Actual Program (2008-2009) and the Young Creators program of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (2001-2002 and 2008-2009).
Diego Pérez lives and works in Mexico City.
