Darren Jones reviews Carlos Rigau’s ‘Delusion Through Details’, Artcritical

LMAKgallery is pleased to share Darren Jones review of our current exhibit Delusion Through Details in Artcritical.

          “Ultimately, Rigau considers artistic process to be art world language for what
            could be more accurately described as “ritual.” His ritual – subtly informed by
            autobiographical, magical and historical frameworks – involves a constant
            process of making and destroying within the physical backdrops he sets up
            for his videos, similar to the way that a priest or shaman would set up specific
            environments to aid the practice of their rites. The results are often mesmerizing
            spatial and dimensional experiences where  visual uncertainty and symbolic
            motifs cause a temporary fusion between the familiar  tropes of daily life, and
            unknown planes that may lie just beyond our comprehension.”
