PARIS.- Galerie Templon announces the representation of Chilean artist IvŠn Navarro for Europe and North America.

A native of Santiago, Chile, Navarro has been living in the United States since 1997. His politically engaged work draws on art history, design and architecture while reflecting on his personal experience of American society and the Pinochet dictatorship of his childhood.

Using light as his raw material, Navarro turns objects into electric sculptures that transform their environment by means of visual associations and illusions. While dazzling on the surface, his work points to a darker undercurrent, eliciting questions of power, control and imprisonment, and becoming a conduit for a penetrating political and social critique.

Galerie Templon has been representing IvŠn Navarro in Europe since 2005 and will be presenting his new work at FIAC 2019, Shanghai West Bund 2019, and at the gallery in January 2021.

Upcoming shows include “Bifocal”, a retrospective of his work at Museo de Arte ContemporŠneo Buenos Aires in November 2019; “Monumento Abierto”, a temporary installation in Santiago, Chile, to be exhibited on the occasion of Cop25 in December 2019; as well as the large outdoor sculpture “This Land is Your Land” inaugurating the new space Momentary, of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR, in the United States in February 2020.

His work is included in a great many international collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), the Hishhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC), Fonds National d’Art Contemporain and Louis Vuitton Foundation (Paris). In 2009, he represented Chile at the 53th Venice Biennale. He was appointed as the associate artist for the Grand Paris Express artistic programme, working in collaboration with architect Dominique Perrault on the future Gare de Villejuif - Institut Gustave Roussy.
