Yves Sadurní Art (Tenochtitlan, 1976) develops his production from activism, in positions that question the sociocultural reality of his immediate context; Hence, Mexico, Spain, France, England, India, the Philippines or New York have been the settings to articulate a plural, inclusive and controversial discourse that explores human behavior and its consequences in ontological arguments. Drawing, painting, design, architecture, sculpture, public intervention or audiovisual works as tools to access from the micro to the macro, from the past to the present, from the general to the particular, from fabulation to the real; These dualities respond to the incessant search for being and the criticism of consumption systems and societies of failed models.
He believes in the social role of art as a trigger and regenerator of tissues, capable of raising awareness and promoting reflection through the aesthetic and contemplative experience. He is interested in generating currents of thought and possible conceptual catharsis, through plastic actions that arouse curiosity and force the viewer to look inside. He conceives interdependence as the essence of the creative force, and life as a whole in that immense connection where art is the medium, which leads the individual by the hand until it emerges from the community.
He has been involved in projects with Vandana Shiva, Satish Kumar, David Byrne, Mos Def, Morcheeba and Michel Gondr; and his works have been exhibited in individual and collective shows, festivals, biennials, museums, galleries, cultural centers, public spaces and natural environments.
