A Gallery Hyundai abrirá exposição do chileno Iván Navarro no dia 28 de março. O artista é conhecido pela união entre o néon e o fluorescente  e mensagens sócio-políticas. Suas esculturas e instalações minimalistas e modernas são orientadas pela afiada crítica social e política, que tem sua origem na história pessoal do artista – que nasceu em meio à ditadura militar do regime de Augusto Pinochet, em Santiago, na década de 1970. O ditador adotava, entre outras práticas absurdas, o corte de energia elétrica como maneira de impor toques de recolher aos habitantes. A luz para controlar as massas é uma memória de infância de Iván Navarro e acabou por se tornar o grande assunto de seu trabalho.

The Gallery Hyundai opens exhibition of Chilean Iván Navarro on March 28th. The artist is known for the union between the neon and fluorescent and socio-political messages. His minimalist and modern sculptures and installations are guided by sharp social and political criticism, which has its origin in the artist personal history – that was born amid the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet,  in Santiago, in the 1970s. The dictator used to adopt, among other absurd practices, power cut as a way to impose curfews on people. A light to control the masses is a memory of Iván Navarro childhood and eventually became the major subject of his work.
