BIOGRAFIA

BIOGRAPHY

EDUARDO NAVARRO (Buenos Aires, 1979) lives and works in Buenos Aires.

Eduardo Navarro attributes to art the capacity to produce new possibilities of perception about the world that surrounds us. In his oeuvre, he confronts a diversity of organisms, studying them empirically, i.e., as from the sensitive experience. In carrying out these approaches, Navarro resorts to various specialists (scientists, archaeologists, musicians, spiritualists) with the intention of altering pre-established conducts and behaviours.

Navarro approaches each project as a new case study that allows him to investigate ways of thinking and expressions foreign to human perception, and works with the profound interest of investigating how other organisms and elements feel and perceive. The great challenge in the artist’s practice is to become what is being investigated. In this way, Navarro proposes changes of situation that provide state transformations, enabling new understandings about what is already known.

Navarro’s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions around the world, including several biennials, such as: SeMa Biennale Mediacity Seoul 2016, Seoul, South Korea (2016); 3rd New Museum Triennial, New York, USA (2015); 12th Sharjah Biennial, Sharjah, UAE (2015); 12th International Biennial of Cuenca, Cuenca, Ecuador (2014); 7th and 9th editions of the Bienal do Mercosul, Porto Alegre, Brazil (2009 and 2013); 29th Bienal Internacional de Arte de São, São Paulo, Brazil (2010); and EV+A International Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art, Limerick, Ireland (2009). Recent solo projects and shows include: Into Ourselves, The Drawing Center, New York, USA (2018), and Der TANK, Art Institute – FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Basel, Switzerland (2017); Octopia, Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City, Mexico (2016); We Who Spin Around You, High Line Art, New York, USA (2016); and Órbita, Estadio River Plate, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2013).

PROJETOS

Eduardo Navarro designs sculptural projects, participatory installations and actions in which he develops his interest in contemplation and empathy. He attributes to arts the ability to create new possibilities of perception about the world. Static research and the relationship between art and science are common in his practice and the artist often seeks collaboration with specialists in order to create his projects. In 2019, the artist works on a project for Pivo’s space based on a research on the movement of the wind and meteorology. The project is a large format installation, a series of actions to activate the project and a publication with drawings by the artist.

His work has been included in collective exhibitions around the world his most recent solo shows include: Into Ourselves, The Drawing Center, New York, US/ DER TANK, Basel, Switzerland (2017/18), OCTOPIA, Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City, Mexico (2016); We Who Spin Around You, The High Line Art, New York, USA (2016). His work has also been included in group show such as: Mercosul Biennial (2009 and 2013); the Bienal de São Paulo (2010 and 2016); ‘Surround Audience: The New Museum Triennial’, the New Museum, New York (2015); the Sharjah Biennial (2015); ‘La era metabolica’ Malba, Buenos Aires (2015); and ‘Metamorfoses’ at the Castello de Rivoli, Turin, Italy (2018).
