About

Hugo Larqué (°1979, Texcoco, Mexico) makes sculptures, installations, drawings and films. By merging several seemingly incompatible worlds into a new universe, Larqué uses a visual vocabulary that addresses many different social, political and technological issues. The work incorporates time as well as space to question energy –a fictional and experiential universe that only emerges bit by bit.

His sculptures are based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. By choosing mainly formal solutions, he considers making art a craft which is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality.

His works bear strong technological references. The possibility or the dream of the annulment of a (historically or socially) fixed understanding of the energy is a constant focal point. By focusing on techniques and materials, he tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.

His works are notable for their perfect finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
