Marcel Dzama, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

We have the pleasure to present Marcel Dzama’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. Revolution Blues will comprise of new works on paper, sculptures, collages and film.

Drawing is the foundation of Dzama’s artistry. He got his breakthrough as a young artist with his distinctive colored drawings in saturated shades, self-made fables and a surreal drama and black humor. An image world that could be taken from a fictitious United States, influenced by early superhero comics, science fiction and early Hollywood.

The recognized Canadian artist Marcel Dzama presents his second exhibition in Galería Helga de Alvear titled A Trickster Made this World. His traditional ink drawings –this time on piano scroll-, paper mache buffoons heads, colourful puppets and his new piece of videoart Une Danse Des Bouffons (2013) construct the exhibition. A Trickster made this world takes its title from the famous book of Lewis Hyde, who brings to life the playful and disruptive side of human imagination as it is embodied in trickster mythology.
