Ignacio Chavarri’s work falls into line with our aesthetic priority at IPMM, which takes a conceptualist point of view. While the incredible ways in which people create the things their ideas have brought them are important to learn about, we care about the idea behind the piece just as much. While process and knowledge are clearly important to craft, art should be about presenting new possibilities and asking new questions through creative output based on unique, personal paradigms.
That’s why we love’ Dog-God and Sobre Los Cuellos so much. Neither of which command technical skill unparalleled by any other human, but they do evidence questions previously unasked. Spanish multi-disciplinary artist Ignacio Chavarri is clearly someone who’s mind resides outside the box. He’s studied at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has shown in Japan. We’re sure he has many hats yet to discover.
