/Since the beginning Jordi Colomer’s work has been incorporating scenical device elements to a singular sculpture’s point of view. Since 1997 he has pointed out the use of photography and videoinstallation. His first videos are shaped from beckettian micronarratives, where individuals debate themselves with objects, decoration and artificial spaces. In his career’s second period, these characters wander the streets or the desert with gestures and drifts that -somehow absurd- entrust a noticeable critical spirit, in order to finally look into the possibilites of poetical survival in a contemporary city.
Colomer's work has been shown in numerous individual exhibitions. Among others: at the 57th Venice Biennale, at the Matadero Madrid, at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, at ECCO, Contemporary Cultural Space, Brasilia. He has participated in several collective exhibitions, such as the MAAT, Lisbon, at the Devos Art Museum at the University of Michigan, USA, at the CA2M. Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo, Madrid, at the Heritage Square Museum, Los Angeles, at Manifesta 10, St. Petersburg.
