Watchlist Artist: Arturo Hernández Alcázar

Galerie Dukan is pleased to present “ Present is a Burning Building” (19 th March - 1 st June 2013), the first solo exhibition in France by Mexican artist Arturo Hernández Alcázar (Mexico City 1978). Arturo Hernández Alcázar Present is a Burning Building* 19 th March - 1 st June 2013 Opening: 16 th March 2013, 2 - 9pm

Present is a burning building groups a series of diverse pieces (partial resultants) that compose an uncertain and unbalanced equation developed during walks, derives, exchanges, an observations along the hollows and fissures of a collapsing system.

As a derivative sequence of encounters and reflections, Hernández-Alcázar’s works are composed by rests and fragments collected and assembled during those apparently non-purpose drifts articulated with specific contexts: a sort of interference introduced in a specific wave.
