Alain Urrutia

Inquire about this work



Alain Urrutia is interested in eliciting new interpretations from pre-existing images. With this aim then, he cleverly fragments and reconstructs the reality of the images chosen in his paintings, by eliminating their own story altogether.

 

Urrutia’s approach is fundamentally interested in revealing the stories contained within each work, whilst also discovering how each painting, with its unique format and layout, is in dialogue with both the other works and the space in which they are displayed. The manner in which all paintings are installed in the space is therefore essential to his work. It is then, through the rethinking of both the works themselves and also through adapting them into the reality of the exhibition space that Urrutia invites the viewer to question the initial assumptions of what they are looking at altogether.

 

ALAIN URRUTIA (b. 1981, Bilbao, Spain) has had a number of solo exhibitions including Revista de Occidente, Casado Santapau Gallery, Madrid (2013). Gazing Again!, Egg Gallery, Beijing (2013). Chapter II, Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao (2012). Naufragio/Esperanza, Casado Santapau Gallery, Madrid (2012). Aktionismus, Sala Rekalde, Bilbao (2012). Incomodidad y otros tiempos, Juan Silió Gallery, Santander (2012). The Coyote And The Wolf, MA STUDIO, Beijing (2011). El quinto en discordia,Torre de Ariz, Basauri, Bizkaia (2011). Fundación, BilbaoArte, Bilbao (2009). Next, Centro Cultural Montehermoso, Vitoria-Gasteiz (2009). Evig Sondag (Eternal Sunday), Stavanger, Norway (2008).  Alain Urrutia has also been involved in group shows such as Dibujo Contemporáneo DKV; DA2 (Domus Artium 2002), Salamanca (2014). Presages, Eduardo López Gallery [FIFIprojects], Mexico City (2013). Historias de la Historia. Barrié Foundation, Vigo (2013). Wunderkammer, Museum Nacht, Delft, Netherlands (2012) Enchanted Mountain, Mário Sequeira Gallery, Braga, Portugal (2011). 90 Memories, Goldman Capital Arts Gallery, Madrid (2010).
