ART: Dario Escobar at Kamel Mennour

 In Events

This Guatemalan artist represented Latin America last year at the Venice Biennale, with his installation Kulkulkan. Kulkulkan has now taken residence chez Kamel Mennour, until 6 Feb, and is the artist’s first solo exhibition in France. A mass of undulating slashed and woven bike tires hang like a forest of snakes from the gallery ceiling. As in much of his work, Escobar manipulates ready-made sports equipment, freeing it of its prescribed purpose and grafting a hand-made aesthetic onto otherwise uniform, mass-produced objects.
