Poems for Earthlings - Adrián Villar Rojas

21 November - 26 April at Oude Kerk
Adrián Villar Rojas

The Oude Kerk presents an immersive environment by Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas (Rosario, 1980). It is his first solo show in the Netherlands. Adrián Villar Rojas has built a practice working across media to create immersive environments and experiences that seem to be in a state of perpetual space-time travel. Evolving over years towards the design of topography-based, mutant, organic-inorganic systems, Villar Rojas invites viewers to become explorers of an unpredictable microcosmos of his design, where the future, the past, and alternate versions of our own present interact as a constantly changing totality. By way of this world building, Villar Rojas posits the question: what if we could see and think of ourselves - humanity - from an alien perspective; detached, unprejudiced, even amoral? What if we could see and think of ourselves from the border of our own completed path?
