Galeria Nara Roesler, which has spaces in New York, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo, announced today that it now represents Eduardo Navarro, the Argentinian artist whose work memorably appeared in last year’s New Museum Triennial.
In the past few years, Navarro’s performances and sculptures about experiencing the world through objects have appeared in shows around the art world, most recently one called “The Eccentrics” at New York’s SculptureCenter. His Triennial work was a sculpture of a tortoise shell that could be worn and performed in, causing the performer to move more slowly and take on the subjectivity of the animal he or she was meant to represent.
Navarro’s work has also recently been shown at e-flux, the Sharjah Biennial, and the São Paulo Biennial. Next week, for a project called Instructions from the sky at Frieze New York, Navarro will have performers wear mirrors, allowing them to see the sky and follow clouds outside the fair. Other Navarro projects are currently planned for the High Line, the upcoming São Paulo Biennial, and the Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand.
