Introducing Sergio Galvis (b. 1988, Bogotá, Colombia; lives and works in Bogotá), one of the artists participating in New Poetics of Labor 2018.


 

“Me siento familiarizado con la labor metal-mecánica,  en especial con el uso de soldadura,  abrasivos, láminas de distintos metales y la manipulación de herramientas.

La observación de diversas superficies que encuentro en la naturaleza o el paisaje, son suficientes para elaborar propuestas en donde vinculo conceptos sobre el vacío y como este es esencial para la composición de un todo.

El acero es un material que me permite hallar distintas alternativas de llegar a la forma, la manera en que lo uso es por medio del dibujo y la escultura, trabajo desde el fragmento para crear superficies más grandes, vinculando en ocasiones el error industrial como alternativa para ampliar las posibilidades en la apariencia de la obra.”

“The work of Sergio Galvis is traversed by the work of his parents in the metalworking and textile industryThe disposition of the sculptures invites the viewer to inquire into the detail, the nature of the object itself. The contrast between lights and shadows; reflections and opacities; framed and empty, it suggests the existence of a balance between the organic and the geometric, and gives the public an experience of tensions and conjugations, not only between the materials and their intricate work, but also in terms of trades and characteristics that distinguish them.” — source
