Ángel Lartigue: La Ciencia Avanza Pero Yo No
Ángel Lartigue (Houston,TX), La Ciencia Avanza Pero Yo No (Science Advances But I Do Not) marks Lartigue’s first time exhibiting in San Antonio and features an on-going collection of various works involving performance, photographic documents and sculpture. The exhibition has been on view at the G Spot Gallery in Houston as well as Box 13 where he is currently an artist-in-residence.
Concerned with the rapid advancements of modern scientific technologies, Lartigue creates interactive installations that transform the space into ritual environments often taking visual references from the history of popular Science, Art and Religion.
Additionally, many works from past exhibitions will be on display that present the transition and evolution of Lartigue’s work including his striking photographic series “Self-Portrait as I were Muertx.” The series documents a solo performance in which a Lartigue lays dead in a variety of desolate scenes while a second character, also Lartigue dressed in black, is seen holding blossoms over his own dead corpse.
Lartigue attended the University of Houston and has exhibited at Rudolph Blume Fine Art Gallery (HTX), Alabama Song (HTX), and the Blaffer Art Museum (HTX).
