Ivan Navarro (Early Close)$15,000 current bid
War Hole VIII
Ivan Navarro (b. 1972, Santiago, Chile) is known internationally for his sociopolitically charged sculptures of neon and fluorescent light. The sculptures and installations of Iván Navarro grow out of the legacy of minimalism and modern design, but they subvert the cool detachment of their forms with pointed sociopolitical critique. Navarro grew up under Pinochet's brutal military dictatorship. In order to better understand this dark history, Navarro uses light-a symbol of hope and truth-as his medium, constructing chairs, ladders, doors, and even shopping carts out of neon and fluorescent lights. With their ambient glow and live current, the works are equally seductive and unnerving.
