Avgang 2024: Santiago Díaz Escamilla / An Endless Opaque (I Threw My Head Back and Looked Upside Down)
Santiago Díaz Escamilla explores notions of nature to reflect on ways of experiencing, perceiving, and recognizing the world we inhabit.
To be read in any order:
A strange seventeenth-century drawing.
A cultural journal article delves into the complexity of the color black.
I take a roll of analog film, and it comes out blank.
Strolls. Should I mention the drifting walks?
There are no photographs in this exhibition.
Sometimes, I wonder if the void has a shadow.
Santiago Díaz Escamilla (Bogotá, Colombia. 1992) explores notions of nature to reflect on ways of experiencing, perceiving, and recognizing the world we inhabit. His works seek to generate environments of contemplation and introspection intended to propitiate states of attention in the public.
He has participated in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art of Medellín (Medellín, Colombia), Museum of Modern Art of Bogotá (Bogotá, Colombia), Quimbaya Gold Museum (Armenia, Colombia), Casas Riegner (Bogotá, Colombia), Oficina Cultural Oswald de Andrade (São Paulo, Brazil) and Immigration Office (Bremen, Germany), among others.
MFA Graduation Projects
The final year Master students will present individual graduation projects in different spaces at KHIO and around Oslo. These newly developed projects will be diverse in form and will take place at different times during the spring semester. Some of the projects will open simultaneously. The graduating students will also collectively explore the group format in a curated group exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus in May. For several decades, the Academy was located at the back of the house, and in 2012, Kunstnernes Hus resumed its close relationship with the academy by showing the annual graduation exhibition in the Master of Fine Art.
Opening: Friday, January 9: 17:00-20:00
