Collection: Pablo Bruera
Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1972.
He lives in Caracas, Venezuela from 1974 to 1984 when he returns with his family to Uruguay. His childhood contact with the work of Venezuelan kinetic artists will have a later influence on his work.
At the age of fifteen, he published his first drawing for the press. His work as an illustrator for newspapers and magazines extends until 2001. Draftsman, engraver, painter and sculptor; It is in this last discipline where he incorporates movement into his pieces with a solid constructive language.
If Cruz-Diez and Soto create the illusion of movement, Calder uses the wind in his mobiles and Tinguely uses motors and gears, Pablo Bruera needs the viewer to move and modify his sculptures. Without the participation of the viewer, the work remains incomplete. By inviting you to touch, to modify, it also invites you to think, to look with the eyes of a sculptor at the work that is being altered.
A game where roles, shapes and planes overlap.
The monumental sculptures exhibited in the public space are the quintessence of his interactive proposal. Bringing art to the streets, within everyone's reach, is also a declaration of principles.
His kinetic works have moved through different streets, collections, foundations, museums and galleries in Spain, Uruguay, Brazil, France, Austria, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
