Iván Navarro

The artist

Born in 1972 in Santiago, Iván Navarro grew up under the Pinochet dictatorship. He has lived and worked in New York since 1997. Iván Navarro uses light as his raw material, turning objects into electric sculptures and transforming the exhibition space by means of visual interplay. His work is certainly playful, but is also haunted by questions of power, control and imprisonment. The act of usurping the minimalist aesthetic is an ever-present undercurrent, becoming the pretext for understated political and social criticism.

SILENT HOMELESS LAMP

Solo Show

8743 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles
Through January 31, 2024

As part of Moving Image Media Part, Iván Navarro is presenting his video work Silent Homeless Lamp on a billboard on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles until January 31, 2024. The artist uses what has become the universal symbol of transience – a shopping cart – to allegorize our collective complicity and the draining of resources that it requires to address something that, if seen, could have been prevented. Navarro’s cart persists, lit with a blinding white glow. A beacon of hope, a lamp, to light the way for all.
