Mauro Guzmán – London Exhibition : Until 30 September / 2011

Mauro Guzmán works across performance, photography, cinema and theatre, interchanging between the roles of the author, director, writer and actor. Starting with the cinematographic tradition of Argentina and its relationship to international cinema and art, he is interested in the tensions inherent in the production and reproduction of culture.

Re-enacting and re-interpreting fragments from film and popular culture, Guzmán tells his own personal stories that may be humorous, romantic or disturbing. Employing aesthetic excess and over-performing, he often creates and subsequently destroys alter egos to explore his own identity as well as shared cultural assumptions.

Guzmán’s recent works centre on cinematographic production. Examples include Pure de Tomate(2010) and Triade (2009) which employ aesthetic excess and inter-film abjection to break down traditional narratives and introduce marginal lines.

Selected shows and projects include: Pure de Tomate, Central Cultural Ricardo Rojas, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2010), Triada, Museo Diario la Capital, Rosario, Argentina (2009), El Volcan Ceferino el Fantasma, una Mesa, unos Faunos, el Tunel, las Flores, y los Suenos de una Noche de Verano, Galeria Apetite, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2009), Linda Kong, Museo Diario la Capital, 4SAR, Rosario, Argentina (2008), Crudo, Ribuar Espacio de Arte, Rosario, Argentina (2008), Proyecto Linda Bler: Artista Poseida, Galeria Apetite, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2007), I Feel Like Linda Bler, Marasca Trip Gallery, Rosario, Argentina (2006).
