For a second year, Copperfield London will take part in the next edition of ARCOMadrid 2019 into the Opening section, from 27th of February to 3rd of March, with a solo presentation with Óscar Santillán. The Opening section, under the curatorship of Tiago de Abreu Pinto and Ilaria Gianni, who have selected 19 galleries, including Copperfield, to present together with a plural geographic and generational perspective.
Oscar Santillan (b. 1980 Ecuador) is interested in connecting distant points: the sweat of a person with the beat of drums, paper made out of a medicinal tree with Nietzsche’s typewriter, or bringing together the breeze displaced by a running jaguar and a marble container. Oscar Santillan studied at Escuela Superior Politecnica del Litoral (2007). He holds an MFA degree in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University (2011); attending residencies at the Davidoff Art Initiative, Skowhegan, Seven Below and Delfina Foundation.
