IRENE PEREZ HERNANDEZ
LIVES/WORKS IN LONDON
Hernandez’s practice is based on the notion of line, motion and space which seeks to redefine the relationship between sculpture and object. Her works challenge the conventions of sculptural semantics, seeking to wrest new meanings from historically-coded aesthetic materials and traditional formal protocols.
Hernández's enduring subject is the status of the commodity in late-capitalist cultural expression. As commodity-culture transmutes all objects and relations into exchangeable units of value, the artist is intent on revealing the parody of process, frequently positioning simple, seemingly-mundane objects in situations alternately poignant and absurd by which poses larger questions about appropriation, self-determination and power relations.
Born in Valencia, Spain, Hernandez graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College, London in 2008 where she currently lives and works.
