One of Colombia’s most important contemporary artists, Oscar Muñoz (b. 1951, Popayán) creates images dealing with the realm of memory, loss and the precarious nature of human life. The exhibition Protographs—a term coined to evoke the instant just before or just after that split-second when the photographic image is captured and frozen forever—presents a body of work built up over a period of four decades. Using many different media (photography, printmaking, drawing, installation, video and sculpture), Oscar Muñoz blurs the boundaries between artistic disciplines by applying innovative and unique processes. His work poetically and metaphorically juxtaposes the artist’s own past and the different material states of the image, whilst highlighting the relationship between the artwork, the visitor and the surrounding space. With his often ephemeral images, Oscar Muñoz invites the spectator to share in an experience that is simultaneously rational and sensual.

Curator: José Roca
