Heterodocsies. Isidoro Valcárcel Medina

Isidoro Valcárcel MedinaConsidered as one of the pioneers of conceptual art in our country, the work of Isidoro Valcárcel Medina (Murcia, 1937) is characterised by the rebellion and the proposition of social events that disrupt daily evolution. His art is more related with situations and reality than with the production of objects. On various occasions, the tale exceeds the work or represents the work itself, leading to a lack of material aspects or filing in several of his actions. Therefore, elements such as playing, movement or luck are constant in his career.  Valcárcel Medina constantly repeated: “The hard thing is being in the world and not making a work of art”.
