Schools, gyms, hospitals, penitentiaries. Organized institutional behavior. Violence restrained for the sake of any institution. Its bathrooms, the break rooms, the classroomâ€¦ the furniture. Holding areas for personal belongings. Places for excretion â€¦and masturbation. Places where instincts are displaced and replaced.
Upon entering the exhibition the visitor will be encountering sound sculptures that propel them toward violence, frustration, and the general impotence that take place in these communal/corporate spaces. Objects like air conditioning shafts, lockers and urinal dividers to name a few, serve as compact models of the disciplinary mechanism.
â€œDiscipline brings onto play its power which is analysis.â€ â€”Foucault.
Carlos Rigau was born in 1978 and was raised in Little Havana in Miami Florida. Carlos graduated in 2002 from F.I.U. with a double major in Fine Art and Television Communications. In 2009 Rigau completed Hunters MFA program in NYC. Carlos has exhibited his work in Berlin, New York, Chicago and Miami. His work is in the collections of Joseph S. Berg and Jefferson Godard.
