Trabajos 2014

Roberto Valcárcel, versatile creator, constantly challenges pre-established ideas in the art market, galleries, institutions and critics.

He insists that neither the title nor the price of the piece and even less the critics’ opinion, can replace the direct assessment and a subjective interpretation of a work of art.

Rather than invite the observer, Valcárcel challenges them to not use these resources or “crutches”. But confront the art work alone, relying on their senses and own psyche. So, they can even find, surprisingly, a sense humour in the works presented.

[Exhibitions /] Todo lo contrario

My work investigates the manner in which collective experience, social context and the production of meaning in quotidian existence inform the construction of personal identity over time.
