Sergio Roger’s work is born from his constant search for inspiration in the ancient artistic representations of beauty. The artist reinterprets iconic elements of art history to break away with preconceived ideas by creating unique and elaborated textile sculptures.
Each of Roger’s works is unique and is created from antique fabric remnants. The artist himself carefully selects these materials from antique collector stores. He chooses fabrics such as old linens and velvets, which carry the passing of time and bring soul to the work. in his “Textile Ruins” series, he interprets our classical imaginary by replacing stone or marble with delicate pieces of antique linen. By means of this material disruption, the artist wants to question our vision of history through archeology. Since graduating from Berlin’s Art Academy (UdK) where he studied sculpture and new media art, he has received several important awards including the Generation 09-Caja Madrid Art Award and Scholarships such as the Meisterschülerpreis des Presidenten. His work is included in several collections including the Colección Norte de Arte Contemporáneo, and Fundación Caja Madrid.
