Pedro Osakar
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Crown Heights

Media:Installation;


ARTIST STATEMENT: From the outset his artistic career has expressed the central topics of his research; the phenomenon of limits, ambiguity in traditional art disciplines and the approach to the artistic task from a fun­damentally conceptual and anthropological point of view. From the questioning of the role undertaken by the image through to the construction processes of a look, there is a recurrent interest in uncovering the contradictions that help us situate ourselves in the face of artistic work and, therefore, in the face of reality. Recently the work with images has given way to a greater protagonism of the text through signs and models of the spaces and places. The writ­ten word takes the place of the image. During this time he has also participated in numerous group exhibitions in Shows, Biennials and Compe­titions. He has been awarded numerous prizes and distinctions and his artwork forms part of both prívate and public collections.
