Press Release

/
Galerie Gilla Loercher is very pleased to present the second solo show of Chilean artist Gonzalo Reyes Araos.
You are warmly invited to the opening on Friday 18 November 2022 from 19:00 - 21:00.
The exhibition comprises a selection of works created in 2022. The exhibited works are the result of the artist's research grant in the Chilean Atacama Desert. "Nocturnos" (nocturnal or nighttime in Spanish) is inspired by the night sky. It is part of an investigation in which Gonzalo Reyes Araos interrogates how contemporary media have conditioned and redefined our bond with nature and how we perceive the world from screens and thought technology. „In recent years the repeated journeys I have undertaken to the Atacama Desert in Chile have been an immense source of inspiration. I observed and learnt about the Andean culture, studied its cosmology and bonded with nature. In ancient times, humanity relied on its natural environment to survive and progress as a society. They recognized themselves as part of this ecosystem or at least accepted that it was the source of all their benefits.“ Gonzalo Reyes Araos wonders to what level we realize ourselves today in a natural ecosystem. To what extent will sunlight and the seasons continue to condition our biological system?
Working in a multidisciplinary approach, Gonzalo Reyes Araos' practice focuses contemporary forms of communication that have conditioned and redefined human relationships.
