Iván Navarro: Welcome | Author: Iván Navarro

This unprecedented monograph focusses on Iván Navarro's public work and site-specific installations. Born in 1972 in Santiago (Chili), Iván Navarro grew up under the Pinochet dictatorship. He has lived and worked in New York since 1997. Iván Navarro uses light as his raw material, turning objects into electric sculptures and transforming the exhibition space by means of visual interplay. His work is certainly playful, but is also haunted by questions of power, control and imprisonment.

This monograph comprises four main chapters, each introduced by one major public installation and some further works which deal with the same problematics. This book focuses on political and social critique, a major subject in Navarro's work. It aims to show the essential role played by both the public space and visitors in the perception of these artworks.
