Matias Duville


Matías Duville (Buenos Aires, 1974) works with objects, videos and installations, although his production has mainly grown out of drawing. His works evoke scenes of desolation with rarified, timeless atmospheres like those that precede a natural disaster: hurricanes, tsunamis or situations of abandonment in the forest that act as a dreamlike vision of a wandering explorer, like a mental landscape. As a reference figure in local drawing, his work is characterised by experimentation with supports and materials. With his expressive strokes and procedures which reveal a certain brutality, he modifies the surface by leaving traces in the representation, marks which blend the nature of matter with the landscape. The tension between opposites, mutation and time are some of the subjects that feature in his most recent works. 

His recent projects includes The Valise Project (MoMA, New York, 2017), Arena Parking (Art Basel, Miami, 2016) Arena Parking (Centro Cultural Recoleta, Buenos Airea, 2015), Mutações (MAM, Rio de Janeiro, 2015), Precipitar una especie, (Barro, Buenos Aires, 2014), Discard Geography (Ecole de Beaux Arts, Chapelle des Petits-Augustins, Paris, 2013), Safari (Malba, 2013) and Alaska (Drawing Center, New York, 2013).
