Paris: INTI ‘Profane’ at Galerie Itinerrance

Inti - Profane

Chilean artist INTI retuns to Paris for a third solo show called ‘Profane’ at Galerie Itinerrance, featuring new paintings and an impressive site specific installation.

For years Inti kept on traveling all around the world to paint murals . His wall paintings often show the Kusillo, a character originated from the south-american carnival, or figures coming from religious imagery. These intense creations organized through rich and meaningful compositions allow him to approach social issues. The artist draws symbols from different cultures and various fields, he takes them out of their context to give them a new meaning by juxtaposition.

For «Profane», Inti selected a dozen of his murals he recently executed across the world from Lisbon to Miami and China. Based on the subjects represented on each of them, he adapted his artistic practice to the size of the canvas and changed some elements to better clarify his intention.

Inti also created an immersive installation by covering the floor with stencilled skulls while a spectacular Pietà sit prominently in the center of the gallery space.

This 8.5 feet high installation is the result of a long work for Inti who experimented with a new medium. It took him 6 months of work and 12 hours a day to finish it. Beyond a technical challenge, Inti managed to represent in volume a traditional figure of religious iconography and reappropriated it with his own codes.

Through this new body of work, Inti addresses various issues , like the conflicts between science and religion, with a critical eye without expressing a definitive answer. The same way he spreads numerous iconography and symbols in each of his paintings, he injects in his compositions a multitude of elements and leave the spectator free to interpret them. «Profane» transcribe very well the journey Inti experienced since his last exhibition. His numerous travels can be felt through his openness to the world and his sensitivity.

«Profane» challenges us to reflect on the banality of our beliefs and dogmas, as opposed to the delicate, ephemeral and natural beauty of life.‘ – Inti
