Tomaz Hipólito’s solo exhibition at SPACE WILLING N DEALING
SPACE WILLING N DEALING (F2, 777-20 Bangbae-dong, Bangbae Jungangro 156, Seocho-gu, Seoul)
November 9 - November 29, 2018
Opening: November 9, 6:30pm
Tomaz Hipolito's work has evolved in several mediums such as photography, video, installation, performance and drawing. With a background in architecture, the work addresses the issues of space, its occupation and transformation. Hipolito frequently revisits motifs and themes he explores over time, a process that reflects the importance the artist gives to “excavation” as he proceeds in his thematic research. Looking upon the contexts in which Tomaz Hipolito has been producing his work, his interest in moving through different kinds of spaces becomes evident. What drives the creation of each work is the motivation he gets from a specific place, combined with his desire to experiment with and respond to settings with very different characteristics and implications. Random attitudes, over a specific project, act in space in order to create singular experiences. Moreover, how can the “same” experience in different spaces, and different experiences in the “same” space, have so divergent reverberations.
The immersion on paper, using trained and random gestures crossing several drawing practices,
will allow to unfold different levels of relationship between medium and content.
Some will be visible thru revisiting the process, and some will be visible from end result.
All paper is available to be drawn. Every drawing is ready to become a gesture.
