THE NOUS

A solo exhibition by Antuan Rodriguez

Curated by Marisa Caichiolo

 

Opening Reception: February 12, 2019, 6:30 - 10pm

Closing Reception: March 16, 2019

‘Nous’ is a term from Ancient Greek classical philosophy that represents the power of the human mind to understand what is true or real.

 

The solo exhibition by Cuban artist Antuan Rodriguez presents THE NOUS as an abstract concept: illustrating the dynamic unity of tensions in the human soul. The exhibited combination of three bodies of work evoke a vision of the global human mesh evolving from the darkness of ignorance to maximum clarity through the acquisition of knowledge.

 

The exhibition is striking for the variety of media included: video, installations, sculptures, objects, paintings, photographies and drawings. Each body of work includes a substantial video and images structured specifically for that series. Through the artist’s career, he has been researching the human drive for universal communication through symbolism and codification. The intense relationship with the human mesh in the latest work makes the intention clear: to find the connection between the arts and the divine, to discover the patterns for inducing the communion of our consciousness.

 

As part of the BBAX residence program, the sound performance artist, Luchi Estevez will collaborate by creating a communal space for meditation, dialogue, and understanding on a regular basis at the gallery space.
