“Luis Treviño used the space to explore the relation between the piece of art and reality, between the real and the fictitious world, between what you see and an illusion. His proposal can be read as an interpretation of a particular reality through which we see the reality itself. He recreates “Gaugins Chair” by Van Gogh, deforming the perspective, the reflection on a glass in front of this recreation is used as a resource of translation between the bidimentional and the tridimentional of what a piece of art means for the author. The idea is not to reproduce Van Gogh’s work, but to transmit the sensation of conquering reality. The reading of this installation refers to different relations, in which there is a state of delivery and displacement between what’s been seen and what is really there: a changing field that behaves, not as a physical reality, but as a device of knowledge.”
