Open Works


Artist’s studio, México City


BIOGRAPHY Gathering all kinds of materials and giving room to multiple formal solutions, media and work procedures, Ricardo Rendón’s work functions as a complex diary where the actions are recorded, documented and accumulated in the transformation and manipulation of the materials and the working place.

Rendón has participated in exhibitions at the Reina Sofía Museum, the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Videobrasil, Videolisboa, the UCSD University Art Gallery, the Museo Experimental El Eco, the Museo Tamayo, the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, the Museo de Arte Moderno and the Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City. His work is part of important contemporary art collections, such as the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation CIFO, The Bank of America, La Colección Jumex, the Isabel & Agustin Coppel Collection and Fondation Daniel Langlois. He is a professor at Centro Nacional de las Artes, member of the Sistema Nacional de Creadores and juror and tutor of the FONCA’s Jóvenes Creadores grants program. Lives and works in Mexico City.

“His works are an appendix of construction or destruction practices that enunciate the moment where things happen, forms that propose the action as leitmotiv.” (David Miranda, Museo Experimental El Eco, 2007)

“Ricardo Rendón proposes an epic that assaults architectures and objects equally. Its working project establishes a direct dia- logue with the capital gain originated by the difference between the wages paid to the worker and the value generated by its manpower within the capitalist system. It is a query on the work and its sense by means of the experience. A narrative that the artist establishes leaving in most cases the waste of its activities within the place of intervention: swept to a corner, gathered inside a transparent container or scattered around the working site. Thus, he proposes a gesture that alludes to its procedure, a commemoration of every moment destined to the production of the capital gain.

His work includes reflections that go from the micro to the macro, continuously restituting the work of the artist by its execution in a direct dialogue with the edification construction.Rendón constructs an aesthetic derived from the Hegelian dialectic of the master and the slave, determining that the truly free individual will be the slave. This last one is who works with the objects, learning to be different from them by its manipulation and transformation.” (Lourdes Morales, 2009) 8


« My work is designed as a system of inquiry into creative practice. It is a search for meaning that not only un- covers motivation, answering the question of why to create, but also permits a critical appraisal of the role of the subject who performs personal work. Reassessing the creative process allows me to make sense of making art through experiencing its continual realization. It consists of determining my subjective reality and setting in motion my creative faculties, which enable the emergence of new understandings. In this way, experience, consisting of the development and accumulation of moments of creation, informs my strategic orientation towards my surroundings. Accordingly, I recognize that as the subject of creative doing, I am shaped by possibilities, events, dialogues and interpretations in a place of continual transformation, a setting of action and experience in which creative activity is restricted only by the physical limits of workspace and materials. » Ricardo Rendón, 2011

«I find the execution of the work as the space of the deepest personal reflection, an instant of concentration. Hence the need to extend such moment of performance in time and space. To devastate the total surface of a wall, to engrave a board of conglomerate wood, to perforate a sheet of newspaper during one month of work or to manipulate a found object. It is an immediate resource that allows me to mark and reveal, step by step, each moment and every fact in the process of creation.» Ricardo Rendón
