UHM is an artists' run exhibition and project space in the centre of The Hague, The Netherlands. Its goal is to initiate a dynamic and collective movement in which visibility of the process and varieties in fields of profession are main features. UHM stands for United Homonym Movement and gives his basic principles in exactly these three words: united, homonym and movement.
UHM introduces Hiding In the Mud, a project of Camilo Barreto.
Barreto (Venezuela, 1978) will in the next few weeks create an explosion of his artistry in UHM, arisen from the need to explore the limits of his own abilities. He approaches the space of UHM as a kitchen in which diversity of materials, disciplines and collaborations with other artists are the main ingredients for the project, where the exhibition is a part of.
Camilo Barreto is not easy to capture in discipline or use of materials. His works are indefinable, experimental outbursts in which both a high concentration and craftsmanship is recognized. This results in raw creations in between drawings, murals, paintings, woodcuts, sculptures, social (cooking)interactions, audio editions and performances. Barreto emphasizes the similarity of these fields in the presence of rhythm, colour, movement and structure. His works often refer to organic or social elements.
Hiding In The Mud will show a total installation of murals, paintings, woodcuts, performance and a cooking event. Barreto will perform with performance artist Kay Patru and work on a collaboration with Juan Giraldo in the next weeks.
