Concrete, steel, pigments, 2020

The new series, untitled Tainted in the mass, revolves around the concept-word "chaflear" explained in his film La Plaza del Chafleo (2018). Speculating on the meaning of this verb, the artist offers some definitions thanks to an iconography developed from his previous films and projects.

To produce these works, the artist colors concrete with different pigments, then draw in a mold with this material.

Iván Argote explores here a new format which mixes both painting and sculpture and balances between figuration and abstraction.
