The Venezuelan conceptual artist Andrés Michelena —with a progressive career spanning more than 20 years in Venezuela, USA and Europe – relied on his income from other sources. He just made sure that his non-artistic occupations were, one way or another, tied to art. Leftovers, considered trash by others, were raw materials for new work, re-ppropriated, converted and transmuted into full pieces of art with aesthetic value and philosophical meaning. Two of these delightful appropriations are showcased at his new exhibition at Piero Atchugarry Gallery.
