Ever think about what will happen to our belongings after the human race ceases to exist? This concept of the end of time intrigued Adrian Villar Rojas to create “The Murderer of Your Heritage.” On display till November 27th, the 54th Venice Biennale in Arsenale will be displaying these towering structures of a surreal future.

Rojas is the youngest artist to date to be awarded with the Honor of National. Being from Argentina, Rojas display is a great honor, as this year Argentina was granted a permanent pavilion in the Arsenale’s Sale d’ Armi. Rojas was additionally rewarded the 9th Benesse Prize promoting him as a, “promising artist trying to break new artistic ground with experimental and pioneering spirit.”

These oversized sculptures consist of clay, cement, burlap and wood. Working with engineers, builders and sculptures, Rojas’ image was created after two months of dedication. These handmade sculptures contrast the traditional conceptual art of Argentina. As if out of this world, the creations resemble machinery mixed with beings of the unknown.

“His work possesses a distinct personal tone. It combines formal experimentation with the construction of a narrative, which allows him to reflect on art, its forms of appearance, and its meanings,” says curator Rodrigo Alonso.
