Carlos Rolón

カルロス・ロロン

1970年 シカゴ(アメリカ合衆国)生まれ

カルロス・ロロンは多角的な実践によって知られる。様々なメディアを駆使し、技工、儀礼、美、スピリチュアル、アイデンティティといったテーマと、そうしたものとアートの歴史や制度との関わりを探求する。プエルトリコの家系に生まれたという背景を持ち、帰属意識や野心、文化的アイデンティティについての問いに直結する個人的な考えを深めてきた。

ロロンは、人々が新時代のアメリカの中流階級の生活に適応していくさまを鮮やかに見せる。次々と入れ替えられる壁紙や家具の色、テクスチャー、パターン。憧れを生み出すために家に持ち込まれた品々。それはしばしば幼少時代の記憶と結びついている。

ロロンはそこからインスピレーションを得て、そうしたもののいい部分を変容させていく。そして、咲き誇る花の絵や彫刻、ソーシャル・プラクティス、多岐にわたる材料で構成されたサイトスペシフィック・インスタレーションなど、様々な要素が混じり合った言語を生み出す。彼の作品は、内省を促し、象徴に満ち、コミュニティとのつながりを提供し、パブリックとプライベートの隔たりに橋を架けるのだ。

ロロンは、洗練された環境や社会的な障壁がどのような働きを持ち、そしてポストコロニアルの場とどう関係しているのかを探求する。作品はメランコリックでありながら、過剰なほどに華麗である。祝福と後悔の間に浮かんでいるかのようだ。そして鑑賞者を言説と議論へと招き入れるのである。
