Freijo Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by the unique and extraordinary artist Elena Asins (Spain 1940-2015).
Her work specializes in an aesthetic attention ranging from semiotics to information theory, from philosophy to visual poetry, from public sculpture to utopian projects and mathematical calculation.
Her artistic production makes visible one of the certainties of the field of mathematics: Rampsey's theory, according to which complete disorder in the universe is absolutely impossible. Asins similarly approaches the semiotic dimension, which she studied at Columbia University with Noam Chomsky, where, starting from a neo-Cartesian approach to universal grammar, she restricts linguistic variability to the use of global concepts.
Her works can be understood as visual metaphors that always contain that which is not intelligible and which remains as parentheses or silence in structuralist theory.
