Carlos Irijalba: A Rock turns into a Frog
A rock turns into a frog is a process publication on the last years of Carlos Irijalba’s art practice, where relative states of matter and non linear procedures intertwine. Some projects take several years to crystalize while other happen spontaneously, others never see the surface or face dead ends. Research and discovery of material/inmaterial, living/inert and their limits and contradictions are the core of Irijalba’s practice.
With texts by Stephanie Hessler (curator, writer and director of Kunsthall Trondheim in Norway) and Paul Hobson (Director of Modern Art Oxford) and design by Claes Storm, this book decentralizes the finished work, overlapping analog and digital graphic material, in exercise of art practice documentation that rarely sees the light.
