Jordi Colomer


Jordi Colomer, artista visivo di Barcellona, si è formato come architetto, storico dell'arte e designer. Ha realizzato sculture, video, installazioni, ambienti e dia-proiezioni. Colomer esplora la natura utopica dell'urbanismo delle grandi città, ma allo stesso tempo presenta la decadenza distopica e l'alienazione connessa all'architettura: l'esistente è fatto anche di disordine ed entropia. Colomer lavora con continuità con gallerie e centri d'arte di Spagna e Francia.

Jordi Colomer spanish visual artist, he lives and works between Barcelona and Paris. Enjoying a gifted and marked sculptural sense, his work spans many mediums, centring on photography, video and the staging of both in exhibition areas. Often the creation of situations -befitting a kind of "expanded theatre"- allows the spectator to assess his/her relationship with the productions and his/her role in and before these. The variety of mediums called forth by Jordi Colomer's work and the transversality of his judgement undoubtedly are linked to his fragmentary education as architect, artist and art historian in progressive 1980s' Barcelona.  Since the beginning, Colomer began to fuse his sculptural work, elements of theatre staging and architectural references. A first phase of his work was determined by different urban sets, that led to works such as Anarchitekton (2002-2004), a travelling project. Then he investigated with absurd humour the possibilities of poetic survival offered by the contemporary metropolis. Some of the more recent work do research on the many facets of utopia or dystopia and its relationship with fiction and history.
