Muu Blanco 1966
My work is a sort of compilation of fragments of collective memory, assembled in visual and sound interpretation, using collage, drawing, painting, assembly, digital photography, installation, video mapping and sound.
Media that are part of a work that I try to be consistent, not complacent with aesthetic paradigms, frequently making use of appropriations that enrich my discourse. I consider myself a “producer of ideas”.
Ideas that I hope are a challenge for the viewer of these times. My proposals are mostly interactive and invite participation.
Usually I am developing several projects in parallel.
At the same time I can be exhibiting and presenting a performance.
My presence in private and institutional collections, as well as in solo and group exhibitions in Caracas, New York, Londres, Milano, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Porto Alegre, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Lisboa, Bogotá, Santiago de Chile, Miami, Sao Paulo, Paris, Buenos Aires, Montreal, Lima, Washington, Asuncion, San Jose de Costa Rica.
