Oscar Murillo’s exhibition “Land With Lost Olive Trees” continues the artist’s emphasis on material – not only for aesthetic reasons, but also as a means of articulating a state of “fossilization” on both a micro- and macro-scale. This so-called fossilization – a suspended or frozen state, if you will – acts as a magnifier of current societal evolution. This employment of materials was best encapsulated in Murillo’s exhibition “condiciones aún por titular” at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, in Bogota, last year.
