EL PRINCIPIO DEL FIN: SEBASTIAN ERRAZURIZ AT CORPARTES
27 November - 27 January 2019
Rosario Norte 660, Santiago, Chile
15 years since his last exhibition in Chile, the Chilean designer and artist Sebastian Errazuriz arrives at CorpArts to present his most recent work: El Principio del Fin. At 28 years old, he was the second South American artist to have his work auctioned at Sotheby’s Important 20th Century Design and has been highlighted internationally with shows like A Pause in the City that Never Sleeps, (2015) exhibited in Times Square.
Taking inspiration from new technology such as smart phones, projections, 3D printed sculptures and augmented reality works- the artist tells us about one of his main concerns: the evolution of technology and its implications for human development. Thus, it seeks to portray the “heroes” and “villains” of the great current technological empires, such as Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Job and Edward Snowden.
