Lives and works in Oslo

Enrique Guadarrama Solis’ practice explores colliding concepts such as tradition/technology, analogue/digital and magic/logic, oscillating between randomness and structure. Focusing on process and intuition, he challenges the boundaries of traditional printmaking through systems, objects, installation and performance.

His recent work is an experimental approach to print that places analogue-based or obsolete technologies in today’s context and examines the value of labour in relation to cultural production. His goal is to challenge the concept of the image in the present by using materials, tools and processes that configure analogue image-making and transform our engagement with the very structures that configure images and printed media.

Solis’ project at MOMENTUM 12 transforms the exhibition space into a printmaking workshop intended for collective use. During the exhibition, invited artists will work together to produce woodcuts and linocuts using The Machine, Solis’ handmade wooden press that generates large-scale colour prints. The workshop elements, research documentation and visual materials will gradually occupy the space. In addition, the artists will develop the first volume of the publication (an art magazine), “The P.R.I.N.T. Chronicles”, working with the biennial’s focus on collaborative practices, sharing, and constructing collective knowledge and experience.
