Adrián Villar Rojas – The Theater of Disappearance

Considerations of loss and sensations of transience and death lend Adrián Villar Rojas’ monumental sculptures a tangible presence.
The exhibition catalogue documents the elaborate staging of the works produced especially for Kunsthaus Bregenz, chronicled in atmospheric photographs by Jörg Baumann. Knowledgeable essays by Venus Lau, Justin Paton, and Thomas D. Trummer approach Adrián Villar Rojas’ works from differing perspectives. A conversation between Thomas D. Trummer and the artist amplifies the fundamental ideas underlying this striking presentation at Kunsthaus Bregenz, marking a new departure for Rojas. The graphic design of the catalogue developed in close collaboration with the artist adopts essential motifs from the exhibition.
