    Andrés Ramírez Gaviria: “A Line However Short Has an Infinite Number of Points”
    Santo Domingo, March 2, 2016

    The Ministry of Culture, through the Museum of Modern Art, in collaboration with the Embassy of Colombia, inaugurated the exhibition “A line, however short, ha an infinite number of points” by artist Andrés Ramírez Gaviria, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

    The opening night was presided by María Elena Ditrén, director of the Museum of Modern Art; Roberto García Márquez, Ambassador of Colombia in the Dominican Republic; Carlos Acero, art critic; and Andrés Ramírez Gaviria, the artist of the show.

    For this exhibition, Ramírez Gaviria groups a series of works that explore notions of quantification, calculation, computation or, in more general terms, measurements. The artist has incorporated an element of strangeness on these issues that traditionally have been considered antithetical to the arts, through clever and playful manipulations and contradictions.

    In one of the pieces present at the exhibition “Beyond Black”, viewers are greeted by a series of glass panels whose surface is covered with a grid that can be seen only on a nanometer scale. The unlikely intervention on these surfaces points to issues related to the conception and perception of the image of technology, as well as the object of art.

    "This work seeks to generate doubt among the audience, and at the same time to look for acceptance and belief. The reflective surface of the glass is a mirror that returns the gaze of spectators, when they suddenly given the uncertainty of being receivers of a joke, intuitively seek something that is imperceptible to the naked eye", expressed Ramírez.

    In "A Mathematical Theory of Communication", the artist reprints the seminar text of the mathematician Claude Shannon, which carries the same title, but with all his signs, symbols, tables and mathematical formulas reorganized to maximize the level of information as it was defined by the author.

    Among the other works, 12 spheres made of meteorites found in the Northwest of Africa. Such are the codified systems of assimilation, translation and reconceptualization in which the artist alters the material culture and manifests its perennial fascination with the complex processes through which meanings are constructed.

    Ramírez Gaviria studied Media Theory at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and earned a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts at the Boston University and a Master's degree from Winchester School of Art / Southampton University.

    Gaviria’s work has been exhibited internationally in the Kunsthaus Graz; Kunsthaus Dresden; BA–CA Kunstforum and BAWAG Contemporary, Vienna; Ar/Ge Kunst, Italy; Caribbean Biennial and Museum of Modern Art, Santo Domingo; Museo de Arte del Banco de la República, Bogotá; Galeria Vermelho, Sao Paulo; ARCO International Contemporary Art Fair and La Casa Encendida, Madrid; and Sonambiente and Transmediale, Berlin, among others. He has been an artist-in-residence at the MuseumsQuartier, Vienna and at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York. He was also the recipient of the Transmediale.06 Award and his book, Between Forms of Representation and Interpretation, was published by Onomatopee in 2012. He has written for various publications, including Flash Art International, Leonardo, and Errata#. Together with Norbert Pfaffenbichler and Franz Gebetsberger in 2014, he co-founded Sigmund, a non-profit space in Vienna.

    A new monograph on the work of Gaviria, with critical texts by Laura L.Wellen and Quinn Dupont, will be published on the occasion of this exhibition.

    The exhibition will be open to the public until 30 may 2016 in the basement of the Dominican Republic Museum of Modern Art, located in Av. Pedro Henríquez Ureña, Plaza de la Cultura Juan Pablo Duarte, Santo Domingo, from Tuesday to Sunday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
