PROYECTOS MONCLOVA c.20 SOLO
Artist at the fair Ištvan Išt Huzjan (b. 1981, Slovenia) Lives and works in Brussels
Thank You All for Coming documents an action marking Ištvan Išt Huzjan’s solo exposition at Proyectos Monclova in Mexico City, where he shook hands and spoke with visitors attending the opening. He presented himself to each of them and expressed his gratitude for their attendance and interest. Huzjan is an artist whose performances and sculptures create tension between opposing poles: avant-garde and neo-avant-garde, public and private, material and immaterial. The artist’s personal narrative facilitates his examination of different media, while also revealing his need to be on the move and explore the boundaries of media. His performances use simple actions, such as walking, to consider the distances between people and spaces. In these works, Ištvan Išt Huzjan muses on society, historical facts, geography and relationships between individuals.
