Stefan Brüggemann has a way with words, presenting tantalizing and trenchant text-based conceptual pieces. The residents of Miami are now due to get a taste of the Mexican artist’s textual flair as Brüggemann is due to shortly install on a façade of the city’s Bass Museum the following work: (This is not supposed to be here). "I like to create tension in my work between conceptual and pop ideas though I consider myself to be more capitalist than marxist. I play with the idea that at the end of the day, art is a product. When someone acquires my work, it means that a circle of communication and production is completed," he says. A selection of new and recent works by Brüggemann are also due to go on show in an exhibition dedicated to Mexican artists at Rove Gallery, 33-34 Hoxton Square in London (5 July-25 August). “Misrepresentation, Mistake and Non-Disclosure”, curated by dealer Marina Kurikhina, will include new and recent text-based offerings from Brüggemann including Untitled (Joke & Definition Paintings), 2011, an astute appropriation of works by Richard Prince and Joseph Kosuth. The exhibition also includes pieces by José Davila and Gonzalo Lebrija.
