Colombian artist Iván Argote is inaugurating Galerie Perrotin’s new sprawling white-cube space on Orchard Street. The focal point of Argote’s exhibition, “La Venganza del Amor”, is presented in form of an immersive film installation and sculpture that seeks to link continents and cultures through personal connections and shared histories and investigates barriers to kinship and integration such as globalization and political ideologies. A son of a militant educator in his native Colombia, Argote’s practice is unapologetically political. He regards public architecture, language, consumerism, and artificial borders as harbingers of estrangement between people but eschews moral pontification and instead finds simple moral and cultural principles that connect us. At Perrotin through June 11.
