A solo exhibition by Damián Ortega in White Cube Bermondsey’s South Gallery, featuring new sculptures, prints and installations. The show explores the artist’s interests in data, systems, cataloguing and collecting.
Damián Ortega’s work explores specific economic, aesthetic and cultural situations and, in particular, how regional culture affects commodity consumption.
He began his career as a political cartoonist and his art has the intellectual rigour and sense of playfulness often associated with his previous occupation. Ortega’s sculptures, installations, videos and actions are inspired by a wide range of mundane objects, from pick-axes to bricks, rubbish bins and tortillas, all subjected to what has been described as Ortega’s characteristically “mischievous process of transformation and dysfunction”.
