Parafin is delighted to announce an exhibition of new work by the acclaimed Chilean artist Fernando Casasempere (born 1958). This will be Casasempere’s first exhibition in London since his monumental field of ceramic and steel flowers, Out of Sync, was installed at Somerset House in 2012.

About

Casasempere is a sculptor working with ceramics, the traditional material of pottery, and his work explores ideas of landscape and the environment. Conceptually his use of earth/clay and his concern with nature and ecological issues connects him to artists associated with the Land or Earth Art movement, such as Robert Smithson and Richard Long, but Casasempere works out of a different cultural tradition, being profoundly inspired by the Pre-Columbian art and architecture of Latin America.

Casasempere's work also calls into question the relationship between art and the environment, between culture and the earth itself from which the sculptures are made. Although his work is predominantly abstract, much of it can be read topographically, almost as a document of the landscape from which the materials have been sourced.
