Cabinets #6 - Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez - 'DIN 201'


‘DIN 201' by Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez is the sixth exhibition in the series ‘Cabinets' which explores the working process of internationally renowned artists both emerging and established. ‘Cabinets' is a unique series of exhibitions, which has as its overriding reference point, the Renaissance phenomenon ‘The Cabinet of Curiosity' otherwise known as ‘Wunderkammer'. The term was originally given to rooms displaying objects, antiquities, paintings and other eclectic ephemera from science and the arts and prefigures the birth of the Museum in Western art. Moreover these vitrines also left a spatial legacy credited with the development of Installation art. In the installations of Echeverri Fernandez, found or discarded objects from popular culture are often combined to examine the interaction between their suspended presence and the environment they're placed within. Through a process of perpetual representation there unfolds a specific narrative or relationship between the objects, which often embraces a certain nostalgic appearance. The attention of the artist is often driven by 'fragments of things', which through a given context, demonstrate desperate and paradoxically loose relations. The elusive nature of these relationships allows the defining process to be constantly reinterpreted and renewed. Recent solo exhibitions include: ‘New Plane', MCA, Malta; ‘Werkstatt des Albhabets', Carl Freedman Gallery, London. Group exhibitions include ‘Les Formes Féminines', Triangle France, Marseille; ‘Sculpture Show', Eastside Projects, Birmingham; ‘SecondHand', Engholm Engelhorn Galerie, Vienna; Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, curated by Tracey Emin, London; ‘Martian Museum of Terrestrial Art', Barbican, London; ‘Gut of the Quantifier', Lisa Cooley Gallery, New York; ‘Fit to Print', Gagosian Gallery, New York. Each 'Cabinets' exhibition will consist of three substantial, purpose-built vitrines. The artist's interaction with these generates a project, which, we hope, will uncover new territories of research previously unseen in their work. Furthermore, the cabinets highly specific format suggests a particular form of audience engagement and approach, thus altering and expanding the works viewing conditions. Accompanying the series will be a limited edition box set of printed matter, designed by 'Language of Form' Pamphlets will accompany each show with a commissioned text written by Nicolas de Oliveira and Nicola Oxley, founding Directors of the 'Museum of Installation' and co-authors of several seminal books on installation art. The next exhibition in the series will be a solo show by Martin Westwood.
