NEW YORK—A bridge, train tracks and a typewriter figure prominently in Alexandre Arrechea‘s solo show at Magnan Metz. The trio and other disparate works in “Twisted Horizon” somehow complement one another. There is a common thread: references to architecture and utility. According to the gallery, the artist has a penchant for exploring objects and places that have no obvious connection, their juxtaposition inviting the possibility of transformation.
Cuban-born Arrechea lives and works in Madrid, Spain. In 2011, Arrechea represented Cuba in the Caribbean nation’s first-ever pavilion at the Venice Biennale and he will participate in the 11th Havana Biennial in May.
“Twisted Horizon” is on view from March 2 to April 7, 2012, concluding tomorrow.
