Jorge Pardo

For the artist Jorge Pardo (born 1963 in Havana, Cuba; lives in Los Angeles), color, form and sense of space stand at the center of his artistic concept. In the experimental crossover of sculpture, painting and architecture, of design and a digitally oriented production, Jorge Pardo gives convincing expression to the utopian fusion of art and life. Just how much Pardo actuates the respective site of ­representation and changes the whole effect of an area by means of his brightly colored design can be seen in his spectacular arrangement of the historical turbine hall at Düsseldorf’s Department of Works and the bar at Kaiser­teich in the K21 Museum in Düsseldorf, as well as at ­German Bundestag’s House of Representatives in Berlin, 2000, or the lobby and library at the Dia Art Foundation in New York. The works shown in this publication from the past 15 years – wall objects, paintings and drawings – illustrate their formal richness.
