Fantasma

25.4 2015 – 25.10 2015

Stockholm

Moderna Museet presents the first exhibition of the Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas in Scandinavia. Villar Rojas compares his practice to a virus that lives in and off the art world. Although his works are rarely overtly political, they are ideologically charged in how they are produced and positioned outside any economy. Time as the catalyst to which all matter reacts is essential to Villar Rojas’ entire approach. His works in organic materials have a radical ending inscribed, as in dramas or in life itself – they sprout, change and disintegrate.
