Jérôme Sans - Historia

LagoAlgo, Mexico City

Exhibitions Curator

LagoAlgo brings together five artists whose works intersect in a journey through time, from a prehistorical age to the Big History of today and tomorrow. Raising multiple points of view on time, this fourth chapter of exhibitions at LagoAlgo brings forward a transhistorical voyage through the past, the present and the future. Historia naturally reunites independent but conceptually interconnected projects by five international artists, Abdelkader Benchamma (France, 1975), Simon Fujiwara (UK, 1982), Sabino Guisu (Mexico, 1986), Caleb Hahne Quintana (USA, 1993), and Guido van der Werve (Netherlands, 1977). 

At a time of unprecedent global turmoil and uncertainties regarding the future, the notion of History takes on a primordial stance as the need to reconnect with nature and culture becomes crucial for approaching the times ahead. While the boundaries between the geological and the cultural are increasingly blurred, humanity’s actions are significantly impacting the planet’s climate, ecosystems and future. Crossing time, from our primitive origins to the hypermodern society of Tomorrow, the works of the five artists resonate closely with the increasing anxieties facing our threatened present and future. In doing so, the exhibition acts like a journey through two temporal perspectives: the first, geological and natural, which spans millions of years, and the second, cultural, which traces humanity’s occupation of the world through the history of art. By interconnecting these two approaches, the exhibition stresses on the necessity to study the present as much as the past to better understand and envision the future.
