Curator: Daniel Castillejo

In his exhibition entitled De lo perdido y lo recuperado (Of Everything Lost and Recovered), Javier Hernández (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 1959) performs a surprising somersault that is capable of showing the conceptual break in which he has always been immersed without losing his identity as a painter of a slow, deliberate and measured pace.

The artist presents a series of sculptures and their subsequent representation in painting, artefacts that pay homage to –or satirise– the context of art and its historical concerns –death, the passage of time, creation, etc.– while at the same time criticising consumerism and industrial hyperproduction. All these works are made from recycled objects, containing dolls or pieces of small obsolete household appliances, to which movement is incorporated by means of small electric motors, ropes or cranks, thereby affecting their condition as an artefact and machine.
