MOLAA - ANIBAL CATALAN El Exploratorio
"Exploratorio features works by nineteen Latin American and Latino artists from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, and the United States." Among those , the Mexico city artist Anibal Catalan stood out among that herd. Not to say those artists didn't produce wonders. Quite the contrary, all of those artists have something to say about the combination of technology, science and art.
Anibal Catalan's work draws from the mythos of the Russian constructivists. Taking their ideas and making them a stark reality. There is also an element of street graffiti come alive. Mostly a grand installation artist, Catalan creates lasting memories in the light sculpture domain.
Christian Castro also impressed the audience with his crab car but Catalan's work begs for discovery. We envision floating worlds, words or space objects. This new wave of floating installation by graffiti writers seems an inspiration but may not be connected at all. However, there is just so many possibilities, both imaginary and real concepts one can conjure up, when in the presence of this great art.
Catalan has the light and space imagery of the original Light and Space artists from California mixed with the architectural presence of Frank Lloyd Wright and futurists. Architecture and form makes a formal debut and even the Bauhaus Movement seeps thru the cracks. Combining architecture, sculpture, light, technology and movement, Catalan is one the most important emerging talents from Latin America. All he needed was just this one piece in the exhibit to make an impression. Just one powerful gesture...that evokes a billion ideas.
