Jorge Méndez Blake

From the beginning of his career, Jorge Méndez Blake has explored the possible relations between literature and fine arts. The artist relates classic literature with contemporary architecture and visual arts to perform installations, drawings and interventions based on the notion of “library,” understood not only as a receptor that accumulates knowledge, but as constructions that hold inexhaustible sources of information, and are thus able to create microsystems that address specific issues such as landscape or love.
