Adolfo Bimer’s practice, through paintings and their displacements, focuses on a material and metaphorical innerness of the human body. His recent work is based on research about direct interactions from both the traditional and industrial world, not only of painting but from the medical and the construction fields as well. Bimer’s body of work questions health and disease; the body’s movement, fluids, organs and textures. He looks at the development of medical technology imaging systems such as x-rays, microscopy and anatomical drawing, as ways to understand a body that we otherwise would not be able to see.
Adolfo Bimer (born in 1985 Santiago, Chile) currently lives and works in Santiago, Chile. His solo exhibitions include Témpanos de Fe, Nueveochenta Contemporary Art, Bogotá, 2013; Las Inseguridades, Patricia Ready Gallery, Santiago, 2013; Tactismo, Revolver, Lima, 2012; and X, Museum of Contemporary Art, Santiago, 2011. He was included in Younger than Jesus: Artist Directory, Phaidon, 2008. Bimer also participates in the Chile-based art collective Sagrada Mercancía.
