Javier Pérez

With a particular cyclical view of time, in which life and death are simply two stages within the permanent transformation, Javier Pérez emphasizes and challenges poetically the fragile line between paradigmatically antithetical concepts such as attraction and rejection, interior and exterior, opacity and transparency, carnality and spirituality, or life and death, invading the exhibition space with a disturbing burden of fragility but still hopeful.

"Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river," wrote Jorge Luís Borges. Javier Perez picks up the message and also give himself to the vital flow of Nature as a way to show their concerns and reflections about the passage of time. "I am interested in the ambiguity that certain forms show. There is a familiarity between the animal and the vegetable; both are determined by the same implacable law: they only exist in a state of constant transformation" says Javier Pérez.
