Michel Cardenas (1934-2015)

Michel CÁRDENAS (Espinal 1934 - Amsterdam 2015)

painter, video art, pop art

Education: Michel Cardena was educated at the Escuela de Bellas Artes Bogota. Cardena has taught for 20 years at, among others, the AKI Enschede and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. In 1986, he decided to return to his original art discipline: painting.

Michel Cardena came to the Netherlands in 1962 from Colombia. The Netherlands was attractive to artists at that time. In 1964 – 1964 Cardena took part in the Pop Art and New Realism exhibition, which traveled on via Rotterdam, The Hague to all the major museums in Brussels, Vienna and Berlin.

The Netherlands was not yet completely used to the pop art influences, during the exhibition 'Snapshot No. 5 in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam 1989' Wim Beeren wrote the following. "The Netherlands had hardly heard of Pop Art, New Realism or Duchamp when Michel Cardena from Colombia entered our country with an enormous amount of knowledge about the new developments in art. In 1962".

Cardena was one of the pioneers of video art and his video works were on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1981. Warmth as a visual element was very important to Cardena and therefore a great source of inspiration as a visual element. The heating of people or objects, Michel Cardena wanted to use this to depict the chilly distance he experienced in Dutch society after his immigration. Because he inspired his work on heat, he tried to melt this fact. An example of this is, for example, that Cardena heated Mont Blanc in a flux-like gasp.
