Lives and works in Santiago, Chile
Since around the year 2000 the Uruguay born artist Pedro Tyler is discussing measuring systems and instruments in his artworks in order to demonstrate a “western notion” of rational thought. Addressing the concept of the possibility of measuring our world, the artist uses rulers as the main material to compound sculptures and objects. Their brisk shape remind the beholder of diagrams or statistics. By stringing together rulers the artist builds the base for portraits of public figures and subtly proposes, that one is constantly seeking for rationalism, orientation and idols in a world, that is immeasurable.
Pedro Tyler lives and works in Chile and is represented in major collections in South America, such as the Contemporary Arts Space of the Uruguayan Ministry of Education and Culture and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia, among others.
