About Willow Waltz

With his abstracted plant-like figures, which appear somehow static, but more in a way that they are caught in a motion, careful not to move while being watched, Pablo Benzo turns the Gallery space into a surreal wonderland where creatures who’s shapes remind of willows are deliberately moved by the breeze. Like a slow waltz they are dancing through the empty space, lost somehow and solitarily yet not lonely but peaceful.

About Pablo Benzo

Painter, Graphic Designer and Illustrator Pablo Benzo was born in Santiago (Chile) and is based in Berlin since 2013. In his youth he spent most of his time and energy in Graffiti and street painting. This has led him to meet and collaborate with many artists from the Santiago scene and later from around the world. The experience thereof and the influence and studies of both historical artists as well as his contemporaries made Pablo expand his work more and more to the studio where acrylic and watercolor took over. After moving to Berlin Pablo Benzo finds oil as a new favored technique and incorporates collage work and ceramics as additional media, complementing and extending his visual imagery. His work is characterized by the construction of confusing and unreal situations where mysterious places, warped furnitures, sleepy plants and collections of interior objects are mixed with abstract shapes, often with a lack of a coherent perspective on the composition of the scenes. Each of the expressions he works with feed off of each other, thus complementing and influencing the possibilities these different techniques deliver.

About the Show

With his exhibition at BC Gallery Curiot is taking us on a surreal, futuristic journey into a parallel universe to accompany his alter ego named Xikatze. As one can presume by looking at the exhibition’s title ‚Act II, Volume IV‚ this exhibition has to be seen in a bigger context. It is in fact part of a whole visualized sci-fi story which involves several exhibitions and reflects the artist’s inner identification process, digging deeply into his experience with Mexican culture and it’s ancient gods and spirits that have influenced him since his early childhood. Act II, Volume IV will show the spectator an open portal to an alternate reality. Created in the real world, it will provide an out of context experience with the intention to bridge the gap between the real and the virtual. Since Act I ended with a transcendent death-like experience for Curiot’s characters, Act II is exploring the idea of what comes after this transition, what kind of worlds you would travel, the things you would eventually encounter or what lessons you might learn from the experiance.

About the Artist

Mexican painter and street artist Curiot was born deep into the Mayan jungle near the cascading spirits, in an unexplored section of the jungle. As a part of a small tribe named ‚Tlaltzotl‘ which can be translated as ‚guardians of the path‘ he was introduced to alternate realities from early on. Nevertheless he decided to go for a classic Fine Arts education at the Universidad Michoacana de S.N. Hidalgo where he graduated in 2008. Since then his paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout South America, the U.S. and Europe cooperating with notable galleries such as Thinkspace Gallery or FFDG Gallery. His paintings which distinguish themselves through an extraordinary use of strong colors, usually appear in a very psychedelic mood. By mixing abstracted ornamental and geometrical shapes he picks up ancient Mexican mythology and transfers these gods and spirits into a new modern, even futuristic looking scenario.
