Vision Of The Landscape

Carlos Chacin is a Colombian artist, born in 1974 in Santa Marta.

As well as being Colombian, Chacin sees himself as Caribbean, as a term that gives him more universality to the context in which he developed his artistic production in the visual medium.

Being Caribbean is also a philosophical position towards life that makes us see and feel differently, because in this area, all races and cultures come together, giving us the hybrid features that are found in each of the signs and symbols present in Chacin’s artworks.

After starting his training at Santa Marta, Chacin went off to study at the Academy of Fine Arts of Havana in Cuba.

Affinity with the Italian Arte Povera led him to leave for Italy in 1999, where he settled for three years and confronted the Italian Renaissance with the contemporary aspect of Arte Povera.

Chacin returned to his homeland in 2002, where he developed new projects to then leave again for Europe, this time to Paris, where he has lived and worked since 2010.

Phototropys 

by

Corina Matamoros

Curator of the National Museum of Fine Arts - Cuba

Bogotá, Havana, Rome, Paris... Multiple scenarios, various academies, dissimilar contexts. Travels, escapades, perhaps the forced dislocation of this young native creator from the Colombian city of Santa Marta, who seems to insist on a kind of conflict that has spread over wide geographical areas of the so-called South. His voice always has a particular tremor, born from his original environment, which has been reproduced ever more rapidly on a global scale.

 

Fototropías is a collection about the sense of belonging, in an age of global communications. It is an installation that speaks to us about what ties us without us being able to invoke any reasonably sane explanations.

Pathas and Ravines

by

Eduardo Serrano

Curator, Art Critic and Historian

The work that Carlos Chacín exposed to the Colombian-French Alliance, "Caminos y Quebradas" ("Paths and ravines"), is broadly representative of Plastic interests that marked its production, as well as the type of thinking that not only cause it but are caused in the viewer. His work, however, is not the product of a priori concepts nor long rants, but suggestions and signs that the images provide him; these images can spontaneously arise from drawings with which he completed his installations, that reality poses in front of his eyes or that may spring from his imagination. Therefore, in his case, the experience of the work can not be replaced by abstract concepts nor by speech, as learned and wise they are.
