about Adrián Villar Rojas
Adrián Villar Rojas has prolifically produced various monumental sculptures and installations across the world, which deals with ideas pertaining to futurity,the anthropocene, decay and the death of things. His obsession with time, the labor of man, the glory of nature have synthesized into a post-apocalyptic language in making art uniquely his own.
His installations are filled with drafted sculptures, imagined fossils of an unattained future and a nonexistent past, looming in debris of discarded objects, junk, trash and rotten vegetation, etc.
A world nomad, Villar Rojas operates with a team of collaborators, settling and exploring new territories, fascinated with material vestiges, creating site-specific yet far-reaching projects that embrace the common detritus of the world.
