Rodrigo Hernández, 1983, lives and works Lisbon and Mexico City
Hernández deals with many languages such as drawing, painting, sculpture and installation in works that join formalism and the social history of the images and materials he uses. His residency at Pivô will outcome in an exhibition composed by objects directly produced in the space and others displayed as an installation at the institution’s second floor.
He studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe and at Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. He was awarded with a residency at Laurenz-Haus Stiftung in Basel and at Cité International des Arts. His recent solo exhibitions include: Shadow of a Tank, Art Basel Statements; Plasma, Madragoa; Every forest madly in love with the moon has a highway crossing it from one side to the other, Kurimanzutto; El pequeño centro, Museo Universitario del Chopo; among others.
