With his exhibition The Theater of Disappearance Adrián Villar Rojas has conceived a passage through human culture from its origins to its apotheosis. He surely secured his place in the history of Kunsthaus Bregenz.
The artist has become renowned for his site-specific work. At the Bienal del Fin del Mundo 2009 in Patagonia, a lithic whale lay stranded in a forest. For the 2011 Venice Biennale, the artist erected a forest of stone creatures, extending to the ceiling like surreal pillars.
He thinks in terms of geological periods, equating prehistoric history and the distant future in his imagery. Wonderful and inspiring.
