Juan Kasari

Time and Space Arts

1974, Helsinki

Juan Kasari is known for his idiosyncratic eccentric pictorial language. He moves between different media, from mixed media paintings to sound works through photography and video, sometimes fusing them all in a complete installations that creates illusion of certain separate world. His style is quite hermatic and not often easily accessible. His installations feature characters from stories of the artists own invention with hints of existing real personalities. Juan Kasari ́s art operates also on many levels of symbolic, literatual and material meaning, evoking for the viewer fragments of stories and dreams. Works are at the same time marked by a careful sense of composition and ironic wit. He mixes facts and fictives in an interesting ways.
