Iván Capote: in the beginning there was the Word, and the Word will be until the end of time

The work of Iván Capote is a venture in creating outbursts of reflection in the viewer. This is achieved through principal concepts such as visual poetry, philosophy, conceptualism and minimalism. Iván Capote was inspired greatly by the poem “Il Pleut” by Guillaume Apollinaire, which in turn motivated him to investigate other experimental poets and poetry. He wrote calligram poems with a typewriter himself. This only added to his interest in how it was possible to create forms and images with words and their structures. Using the evocative quality of language in his art, he translates our experience, passions, fears and emotions into something tangible and concrete. Even though text and writing play key roles in his artistic process, he also produces work that focuses more on form and its nature as well as sculptural matters.
