Trophy Room by Dzine at Galerie Henrik Springmann and Salon 94, Art Cologne 2014

In the Collaborations section of Art Cologne 2014, Galerie Henrik Springmann (Berlin) and Salon 94 (New York) present the installation Trophy Room by Dzine (Carlos Rolon). Trophy Room deals with the culture and ritual of boxing, and its relationship to memory and the Latin American diaspora. Sports, and boxing in particular, have always played an important role in Latino Culture, especially in Puerto Rican and Cuban culture.

Dzine (b. Carlos Rolon, 1970) is a Chicago-based artist who appropriates elements from popular culture, Baroque design, and the Arts and Crafts movement, to develop his own language. As media, he mainly uses sculpture, painting and installation.

Dzine (Carlos Rolon) studied at Columbia College in Chicago with a concentration in painting and drawing. Recently his works were shown, among others, at MARTa Herford (2014); Galerie Henrik Springmann, Dusseldorf (2013); The Dallas Contemporary (2013); BEARSPACE, London (2012); Salon 94 Freemans, New York City (2011); Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery, Luxembourg (2011); Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna (2010); Bass Museum of Art, Miami (2009); University Galleries at Illinois State University (2008); Museum Het Domein, Sittard (2008); Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead (2006); Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, Santurce (2006); Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis. (2005); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2004) and Illinois State Museum, Chicago Gallery (2004).
