Description

Perforated by Itziar Okariz and Sergio Prego. Since the early 1990s, Okariz and Prego have produced work marked by its aesthetic coherence in the search for the limits around the body representation. Drawing on economical resources, they create an austere and powerful body of work that is complex in its simplicity. Through performance, video, and sound, Okariz explores the displacements between the subject, the language, and its physical presence. Prego’s sculptural works relate to architecture, calling materiality into question through the use of lightweight, exible materials that allow the form to only exist in a specific state or as a result of a continuous action on the constituent material. Both artists reiterate the alternative functions of the body in our technified society.
