Alberto Alejandro Rodriguez – Destruktion

 

 

Alberto Alejandro Rodriguez

Destruktion

February 13 – May 23, 2020.

Note: 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel will temporarily be open by appointment only. 

 

Destruktion is a project presenting painting, sculpture, and artist books by Alberto Alejandro Rodríguez all centered on the different forms that ruins can take in modern society. Not simply as partially or completely destroyed architecture but as a changing structure woven into the urban fabric, a byproduct of indifference as humans reflexively think and interact with the space around them. The series of works in Destruktion highlight the consequences for today’s society, both negative from a practical point of view and positive from a poetic point of view.

“Destruktion” a term coined by Heidegger that influenced Jacques Derrida’s philosophy of Deconstruction, refers to dismantling a phenomenon in order to analyze and comprehend it. Every concept has a deconstructable metaphysical aspect.
