Cordoba, Argentina - The varieties of works that make up this exhibition of Matias Factorovich are based on the idea that out of the original chaos is possible to give birth to "the things of the world". On exhibition at Maria Elena Kravetz Gallery September 5 - October 5 2007.
Hence, some of the pieces contain an array of materials seemingly heterogeneous (from small objects of daily use to non-functional or broken elements) that Factorovich has assembled to provoke among them a relationship of harmonious dialogue. Inserted in this new context, and many times through the use of irony, these objects acquire other significance; they are revalued as they get impregnated with a profound poetic sense.
"In these pictorial works, the irony and the poetical are shaped by using an intense palette which naturally travels from the dark to the luminous, from the cold to the warm, from the dry to the moist. It's recurrent the use of certain figures (self referential, religious, mythological or from the animal world) which create the imaginary, poetic-mythical universe of this artist." ... Rubén Pagliero
