Plazas is known to break through the ‘dead normal everyday object’ and invites us to comprehend objects as animated living matter. For his first solo exhibition in Sydney, Juan Pablo Plazas turns his lavish attention to the iconic Australian image, Sunbaker (1937) by Max Dupain.

From body representation to perceptual depiction how young Brussels based Colombian artist Juan Pablo Plazas translates Dupain´s iconic image into a series of sculpture and drawings to question awareness and challenge the imagination.

Selected solo exhibitions include S.M.A.K, Gent, CENTRALE for Contemporary Art, Brussels, Bureau des Realities, Brussels, Hector, Mexico City, CRISPR, Bogota, Mieke Van Schaijk  s-Hertogenbosch and Double Sejour, Paris. Plazas will debut in the US at Open Source, New York in 2025. 

Public collections include Frederic de Goldschmidt Collection Brussels and Oliver Vandenberge Collection, Belgium. Plazas first mongraph was published by Posture Editions, Belgium in 2021.
