First and Second Floor Galleries
Arturo Herrera was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1959, and lives and works in New York and Berlin, Germany. He is on display currently for the first time in England at IKON Gallery. As quoted from the IKON Site, "The centrepiece of this exhibition is the ambitious animation, Les Noces. This work comprises photographic and drawn details taken from Herrera’s previous works, characteristically cut and spliced to create new complex networks. Set to a ballet score of the same nameby Igor Stravinsky, the artist’s graphic visuals are complemented by its percussive musical idiosyncrasies."
I am intrigued by the idea of setting the work to a ballet score. I wish England were closer. You can read more about Herrera here.
