New Work - Mixed Medium

Tiago Mestre - Empire

Empire is Tiago Mestre's first solo show at LAMB. The artist invites us to scrutinise how certain socio-cultural forms express social and ideological values; the way in which signs and symbols take on contradictory and conflicting meanings; the discursive arrangements produced in the encounter between nature and culture, the raw and the cooked. It is especially about the imaginaries surrounding that nineteenth-century United Kingdom, a moment that expresses significant changes in the symbolization of man’s relations with his surroundings and that, ironically, seems to refresh some knots in our present.
