Fúcares Gallery in Madris Presents Latest Works by Carlos Schwartz
Carlos Schwartz, "Pasarela", 2009. Metal y luz. 330 x 345 x 70 cm.
MADRID.- Fúcares Gallery presents in its Madrid headquarters an exhibition of the latest works by Carlos Schwartz. It is made up of a group of pieces - sculptures, photographs and assembled objects. Light is still their common element, linking meaning and intent.

Light places these pieces on an unfamiliar and unreal plane from which they question the viewer. Stairs that go up to nowhere, ramps and footbridges that end on the wall, all ask us about their value as transit elements. In addition, light places them on a different plane of meaning from which they defy our sight: light is that which comes from somewhere else and demonstrates the materiality of objects, while transcending it. Thus, the fluorescent tubes embody a sense of the sacred, and their industrial nature also shows the contradictions between the mundane and the transcendent, creating a dialectical tension from which a sense of the unfamiliar emerges.

However, when making the objects, the artist does without some of these considerations and focuses on the playful aspect of the relationships among the light, the altar lamp, space and the elements with which it is assembled. A broken porcelain Harlequin, a top hat made of transparent glass, a deer horn or a decorative earthenware disc swap their status due to the effect caused by their proximity to the fluorescent tubes, as if they disguised themselves to play adopting new identities and meanings.

The photographs that Carlos Schwartz is first presenting here are images of screens, streetlamps, bulbs, light signals that would invent the way we have to shape light.
