The solo show Physical Structures by Mexican artist Ana Roldán, gives an insight into the artist’s new works, based on her perception of nature and its relation to abstract structures and to the interpretation in different cultural contexts.
Based in Zurich, Ana Roldán’s work is inspired by cultural phenomena: Historical events, philosophical ideas, language, systems, reflections on aesthetics; theoretical concepts in general. Roldán is interested in how the spectators can be stimulated physically as well intellectually through the opposition or displacement of the mentioned systems. Ana Roldán works in diverse medias such as performance, sculpture, installations, video and collage. She often employs natural materials such as coconuts, bamboo, wood, semi-precious stones or leather that reflect the origin and usage of the material in the investigated cultures.
