Ivan Navarro, Saatchi Gallery
Echoing the minimalist works of Dan Flavin, Ivan Navarro’s light sculptures subvert the cool detachment of florescent bulbs with their arrangement into recognisable objects. In Homeless Lamp, the Juice Sucker Navarro builds a shopping cart from electric tubing. Plugged in to a replica street outlet, complete with fly posters, Navarro sets a stage where the dichotomies between wealth and poverty convene as a literal and allegorical emblem of power and waste. Basking in an artificial glow, Navarro’s Homeless Lamp, the Juice Sucker exudes a religious aura based in consumerism and corruption.

These energy conversion processes necessarily imply a certain loss of energy." 2002
