Pablo Dávila


In his multidisciplinary works, Pablo Davila (b.1985, Mexico City) takes as a starting point the traditional artistic media to question how they reflect the social construction of space and time. In his installations, the Mexico City-based artist excavates a space for interference and ambiguity through forms both pared-down and rich with an immediate sensorial experience. His practice explores sentience and subjectivity through investigations in perception, space and time consciousness. His practice takes many shapes-- encompassing video, electronics, light installation, photography, conceptual painting and site-specific interventions. His work traverses the space in between sensory perception and cognitive understanding. His poetic gestures trigger a questioning of our expectations in dealing with the passing of time, and the psychological lens with which we process events in our memory.
