Conceptual artist Marcos Chaves’ photographs, videos, assemblages, and large-scale installations transform neglected everyday experiences and materials into art objects. His parodical and light-hearted work uses humor to obscure a tragic and poetic sensibility. “Humor opens paths,” he says. “Sometimes you might laugh at something, but it may not be that funny. Humor might make us stop and think.” Chaves superimposes text over photos, documents his own artistic interventions in photographs and video, and installs pre-existing non-art objects in artistic contexts in a manner reminiscent of Marcel Duchamp.
