Nicolás Lamas’ work derives from an interest in constructing material interactions, frictions, attractions and repulsions, dichotomies between the similar and the incompatible, between vacuum and matter. Most of his projects focus on examining notions of stability and order by distorting the logics of perception through objects and materials that somehow don’t belong together, constantly arranging a notion of knowledge that escapes systemic procedures.
For his exhibition at P/////AKT he reflects on the transitory condition of matter as embedded in a system of ephemeral and divergent relations. The artist has taken the exhibition space to build an ambience of wild connotations that shows his interest in visceral materiality.
The exhibition is a frozen production site where man-made elements, organic materials and mass-produced objects have been simultaneously choreographed in order to echo an outdoor potentiality that exists beyond the exhibition’s limits. When one moves through the space becomes aware of the entangled processes that constitute this project. Matter is here an alibi that allows the viewer to address transience as intrinsic to the general state of things, in which notions of danger, uncertainty and predation become apparent.
The project was developed in dialogue with Alejandro Alonso Díaz
