March 22 — April 26, 2008
Mexican artist MARTIN SOTO CLIMENT presents his second solo show in New York since his debut CHECKMATE in fall 2006. HIDDEN SYMMETRIES is a composition of sculptural arrangements, all designed in the ‘temperature’ of a specific time re-enactment. Based in Mexico City SOTO CLIMENT generates a unique language of the found or processed object as a messenger, – of the retroactive in the contemporary, of cultural and social meaning. His iconography and travesties of objects are rooted in his interest and admiration for classic surrealism, which was an important movement for the Left in the 30s and 40s in Mexico City.
