Juan Araujo’s installation, The Hunter’s Dream, takes the Fondation Beyeler in Basel as its focus. The work explores the relationship between Renzo Piano’s architecture and Ernst Beyeler’s collection of indigenous African art. The paintings and projections are housed in a bespoke pavilion designed by Araujo to replicate the museum’s modernist structure. Since moving to Portugal from Venezuela, Araujo has become fascinated with the genesis of modern and postmodern architecture in Europe, and how these ideals travelled across the Atlantic to influence the development of 20th century Latin American architecture. Looking at the significance of Renzo Piano in the history of postmodern architecture, Araujo was particularly struck by the Fondation Beyeler and the synergy between the building, art, and the surrounding landscape.
