  Essay by Jean-Fran?ois Chevrier

Austere and cryptic, with just a hint of scruff, this is formalism with a little French materialism. Bustamante is a photographer, sculptor, designer and architect whose artworks are as beautiful to look at as they difficult to categorize. Lush landscape photographs of the artist's native Barcelona are featured alongside objects of wood, steel, carpet, plastic and cement. Together, they formulate materialist fields with geographic and/or architectural overtones. An eloquent essay by one of Paris's leading critics provides an insightful introduction to Bustamante's multi-faceted and enigmatic work. This is the first English language catalogue on this important French artist, a participant in both Documenta 8 and 9.
