Alvaro Arrosamena concept of art embraces a breathtaking range of disciplines which are constantly interacting with each other, paintings, installations, performances, film and multimedia are the tools to express his own vision of the world, where different aspects of popular cultures, traditions and transgressions are common. He integrates spiritual and socio political subjects to analyze the problematic of identity, social integration, acceptation and assimilation in multiracial western society. Influences and taboos related to mass culture, the subversive, the minorities, subcultures, forbidden spirituality and the occult. His interdisciplinary activities manifest the interaction of the human body and the spiritual, placed in a spatial temporal context, which is reflective of social, political and cultural, or even of personal, religious or psychological issues. These results in a variety of multiple media artworks which integrates with the performance as a motor, creating more complex projects, sometimes as a studio activity and some others perform to the public. The implications of the interplay between body and space in their diverse manifestations, give foundation to the production of these “communication processes” where Arrosamena arrives to transmit a kind of sacred occult message and make us participants of legendary expressions with spiritual and human contexts. Most of the times he and/or his group, transform the spaces to perform, playing with communication at an emotive level. Other times the performers invading a specific place and transmit political or social interventions to analyze a specific problematic. A more abstract and aesthetical performance like real time paintings and collective creations are common for Arrosamena too. His work in ”rituals” defines a site to what our culture call the irrational and subjective and present us artworks that analyze the otherness, the occult or even questioning gender values or cultural taboos in western society. In these activities the public form part of the whole installation and experience a variety of feelings and emotions during the session which includes music, dance and ritualistic expressions and where female and male performers are often leading some kind of participatory animistic ceremonies. His complex projects often integrate the participation of performers, musicians, technicians and other collaborators. He presented several art performances, public performances and rituals in various locations and spaces in Sweden, Thailand, Laos and Uruguay. The artist sees the performance like the nexus to all art disciplines and an active tool for the fluid communication between the magic moment of creation and individuals of the society
