JOSÉ LUIS LANDET

Argentina, 1977

Curriculum

 

The work of José Luis Landet is manifested as a meeting point in which diverse modes of operation and assimilation of cultural processes crossed by social, political and ideological actions, take place. He takes; among others, oil landscapes from 1940 to 1970 whose Romantic character, typical of amateur painters, shows a personal search for the notion of paradise, recreating an apocryphal subject.

Returning to everyday images such as paintings, photographs, letters, postcards, super 8 films, slides, texts, magazines and books loaded with memory, time and use, Landet creates new objects materially and conceptually from a specific analysis, registration and classification.

Archive, cut, break, cover, falsify, submerge, fragment, simulate, remove from the shadows and put new ones are transformed as the artist considers into poetic actions.
