The Institute for Latin American Studies (ILAS) of the University of London has invited the London-based Chilean artist, Pato Bosich, to present his most recent body of mixed media work: Antiquity. Developed over a period of over five years, the results are a richly, dense, playful and exciting series of drawings inspired by the British Museum's collections of Mesoamerican, Greek, Mesopotamian and other antiquities.
Bosich's "Antiquity" is rooted in the search of the fragmentary. The works explore how antiquity discloses the multiple primordial worlds, and the artist's intention is to piece together the past, present and future into a coherent whole. The artist's use of the unconventional combination of ink and wine has uncanny parallels with a poem by the 13th century mystic, Abraham Abulafia, often cited by the artist, about perceiving our soul as blood and our spirit as ink, and that understanding the battle that rages between them is our key to self-knowledge.
All of the works are available to buy directly on-line on the McCaslin website - individually or as small groups curated by the artist. Please call if you have any questions: Tel: 0203-151-8810 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Venue: Senate House, University of London, ILAS, second floor, Malet Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HU; Mon - Fri, 10am - 6pm.
