Singapore –INSTINC Singapore is proud to present the exhibition Tableau (or the difference in between one red color and another red color is the distance between them II) by Mexican artist Raul Mirlo.
Tableau is a French word that means that the painting as a painted surface and the painting as an aperture made in the wall are two meanings of the same word, which are not excluded but complement each other. With this project, Mirlo further dissects the themes of his previous exhibition: The difference in between one red color and another red color is the distance in between them I, seeking to examine and emphasize those singular spaces where the artwork is happening. The conflict spaces or weak points are important for him because they allow to dislocate the limits of aesthetic experience and put in crisis the given speeches.
The artwork is not representative of anything; it is presented itself, with and between the space, the gaze and the architecture.
About Raul Mirlo
Raúl Mirlo (Monterrey, Mexico 1985) is a visual artist that focuses in painting problematics. He comprehends painting as a resistance field, an unconcealment tool and for the most a mean rather than an end. He holds a BA from CEDIM, Monterrey, Mexico and completed a specialty in semiotics at BAU in Barcelona, Spain. His work has been exhibited in numerous spaces in cities such as Moscow, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Barcelona, Mexico City and Monterrey. He has realized artistic residencies in Singapore, Abu Dhabi, Berlin, Yerevan, Kuantan and Valparaiso.
Nowadays he lives and works in Mexico City and is part of Luis Felipe Ortega´s studio team with whom he assisted in Possessing Nature on the 56th Venice Biennale. He is currently part of SOMA educational program 2017 generation.
