Ricardo Trigo

 

About

My research focuses on the intrinsic philosophical problem within the concept of progress, an ideologically charged notion, and how it constitutes a paradigm of values shaped by technological and scientific developement. In this way, each scenario of technical achievement creates a set of relationships with art: technologies and the idea of progress they entail are often used as medium, internalized and therefore neutralized.
My recent investigation leads to certain materials produced by secondary branches of global companies like Bayer, Agfa or Basf, flagships of cientific expansion, which end up being use in the art industry as medium of representation.
My exercise consists in presenting these materials, not just as a format, but brought to the forefront and subordinated to the rethorics of artistic display.
