Daniel Santiago, an invisible portrait

opening tomorrow, Sunday January 5th from 7pm.

Porcino is pleased to announce the opening of its third exhibition, Daniel Santiago, an invisible portrait.

Porcino is a parasitic gallery located in a hole underneath the floorboards of Chert Gallery in Berlin. Actually, that is not true at all, not at all. Porcino is actually a mycorrhizal gallery located in a hole underneath the floorboards of Chert Gallery. Like the Boletus Edulis and the conifer tree, Porcino and Chert form a symbiotic relationship, their roots and mycelium intertwined with each other as gifts are exchanged for each organism’s continuous survival. It was founded in 2012 by David Horvitz during his first exhibition at the gallery.

Daniel Santiago (born 1939, Recife Brazil) is known for his association with Mail Art, and particularly for his collaborations with friend Paulo Brusky. His work is a playful and often humorous exploration of the poetics of the everyday, whether through capturing the cultural landscape of his surroundings in drawing, or by intervening in the public space of the city with performances and installations. Santiago’s work touches on philosophical questions about solitude, life and freedom, inventiveness as a strategy of survival and the potential of collaborating with others.

Gallery History & Program

Casas Riegner Gallery was established in Miami in 2001 for the purpose of promoting Latin American contemporary art. In 2004, after achieving an important position within the Miami art scene, the gallery embarked on a challenging project: the dissemination of contemporary Colombian art on a local and international level. In March 2005 the gallery opened its doors in Bogotá, thus developing a complete and ambitious gallery project that focuses on research and artist selection with a clearly defined curatorial approach.
The gallery aims at introducing new artists to local and international audiences and establishing a vital exchange between emerging contemporary artists, a new generation of art collectors, and local and international institutions.

Historia y perfil de la galería

Galería Casas Riegner fue fundada en 2001 en la ciudad de Miami con el propósito de promover el arte contemporáneo Latinoamericano. En 2004, luego de labrarse una posición importante dentro de la escena artística de dicha ciudad, la galería se planteó un nuevo reto: diseminar el arte contemporáneo colombiano tanto a nivel local como internacional. Para llevar esto a cabo, Casas Riegner abrió sus puertas en Bogotá en marzo de 2005, desarrollando desde entonces un proyecto galerístico ambicioso que se centra en la investigación y selección de artistas en el marco un proyecto curatorial definido.
La galería busca introducir a estos nuevos artistas en el escenario local e internacional, promoviendo además la interacción entre artistas, una nueva generación de coleccionistas e instituciones.

Robert Kinmont. Mousse Publishing.

Posted in art, exhibitions on June 21st, 2013


Although the Californian conceptual artist Robert Kinmont’s work dates back to the late 1960s and the beginning of 1970s, this is the first monograph ever. Kinmont is primarily concerned with his environment, the Californian landscape. He works with simple, mostly natural materials, and places them in relation to his body and his life. Probably his best known work, entitled 8 Natural Handstands (1969/2005), a series of photographs showing the artist doing handstands in abandoned landscapes, on the edges of cliffs, river beds, forests and deserts, was illustrated in Lucy Lippard’s famous book Six Years: The Dematerialization of the Art Object from 1966 to 1972. Not so long afterwards, Kinmont retreated from art practice for the following three decades. Recent solo exhibitions in Glarus and Bremen have been the occasion for a long overdue publication. Kinmont is back.
