UNTITLED Art Fair in Miami Beach features Catalan artist Pep Duran

Arts.  Miami Beach,  09/12/2018

Pep Duran's Backlot Constructions is a site-specific installation comprised of an eclectic array of objects that compiled together create personal maps and landscapes.

In stacking these items, be they from the artist’s archive or manipulated, the artist infuses them with new life and meaning, creating narratives without an argument, a theater play without words. Materials such as wood, cardboard, felt, blankets, ceramics, bronze, and aluminium all appear repeatedly. 

As the artist explains: “The pieces in this series are like silent scenes, like assembly of personal maps that push the concepts of construction and representation”.  

Pep Duran's installation Backlot Constructions (2018) is featured in the UNTITLED Special Projects section.
