About the Event
Ivan Atehortua has been using toys and found objects to create art since his childhood. He holds on to objects from the past and remixes them with the present in a process that reflects his path of immigration. His assemblage paintings explore how emigrating from Colombia to Canada has affected his identity, he compares the selection and remix of objects with the way he accommodates memories and references to define himself as a citizen of both countries.
This one-month solo exhibition at Meteque will show works done in Montreal during the last 5 years and is part of the project “Chez nous Chez vous”. It will also include an open studio where the audience can see his collection of found objects and two workshops where people will create their own artwork using Ivan’s assemblage technique.
