SEOUL.- Perrotin is presenting Gabriel Rico’s first solo exhibition in Asia with the gallery.

Looking back to a time when man was believed to be the master of nature, Rico investigates historical technologies seen during the peak of the Age of Reason. He distills geometric shapes that correspond to this period when the applied life sciences began to rely on mathematics to quantize nature in order to understand, dominate, and ultimately attempt to conquer it.

With a post-Surrealist approach, artist Gabriel Rico’s latest body of work mines a range of materials from taxidermy animals to neon shapes and found objects, that together create environments addressing the relationship between nature, architecture and the future ruins of civilization. Looking at the behaviors and survival techniques of insects, such as the preying mantis, and animals like the South American fox, he creates settings that reveal complexities of the current human condition. The juxtaposition of diverse life forms come together to mimic a mathematical equation or formula, which infuses the objects with a humor and irony reflective of the common struggle to attain a poetic equilibrium.

Gabriel Rico’s work is featured in this year’s Venice Biennale curated by Ralph Rugoff and is currently the subject of a major solo exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum curated by Heidi Zuckerman.

Gabriel Rico (b. 1980) lives and works in Guadalajara, Mexico He has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions worldwide, including the Power Station, Dallas (two-person show); the ASU Art Museum in Phoenix curated by Julio Morales; the Gyeonggi Creation Cente in Ansan-do, South Korea; the MAZ Zapopan Art Museum in Zapopan, Mexico; and the CEART Centro de arte Tomaz y Valiente in Madrid, Spain. His work has been a part of many group exhibitions, including 8th Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale, Seoul, South Korea; and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, Italy, among others.
