Sol Calero

In conversation with
Johan Gustavsson & Clara Pallí Monguilod

As part of the exhibition: LOS VESTIGIOS DE LA TURISTA
This took place before the opening on 06/02/2022

The artists invited to realize a project at 1646 are asked to engage in conversation with a correspondent via email or DM, be it someone previously unknown to them or whom they’re already familiar with.

This conversation spans the period before an exhibition is completed. 1646 invites the correspondent at the other end of this exchange to ask questions so they may be guided through the artist’s decision-making process and how their initial ideas develop toward completion. It provides insight into the artist’s body of work and is intended to paint a picture of the otherwise untraceable choices that constitute the artist’s practice.

About

Sol Calero: Calero (b. 1982, Caracas, Venezuela) lives and works in Berlin. Her work revolves around the notions of ancestry, culture, and the transformation of meaning that visual symbols can undergo in society. Calero intends to engage the viewer through her artworks which themselves proliferate meaning, imitating the cultural signs which she aims to explore. Sol Calero and her partner Christopher Kline run the Berlin-based project space Kinderhook & Caracas. Calero was shortlisted for the Preis der Nationalgalerie and nominated for the Future Generation Art Prize in 2017. Her works were exhibited in venues such as Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Düsseldorf Kunstverein; La Casa Encendida, Madrid; Copenhagen Contemporary; Villa Arson, Nice; Brücke Museum, Berlin; Nikolaikirche, Stadtmuseum Berlin; Kunsthalle Lissabon, Lisbon; SALTS, Basel; Studio Voltaire, London; Hamburger Kunsthalle; Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam; SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin; ACCA Melbourne, Melbourne; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris; Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund; Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria; Folkestone Triennial; MO.CO.
