EXCERPTS SERIES

Sculptures, since 2012

The Excerpts series started in 2012 with the project La Estrategia and it is related to the artist’s use of documentary fiction. At the beginning, Iván Argote reproduced some graffiti, gradually the wall excerpt (composed by concrete, polyurethane, steel, paint) became a medium for writing and drawing, just like a blank page in which the artist writes statements, fictive conversations between fictive people, songs excerpts, exhibition titles, films scripts, comments on artworks exhibited nearby and various quotes. Sometimes really enigmatic and mysterious, the Excerpts series is a sort of a false documentary, a procedure that has archaeological characteristics, but with modern materials and discourses.
