After Tourism comes Colonialism (2018)
Set of seven serigraphies directly printed on the side wall of the Low Cloister. At the base layer images registering native Indigenous of the Americas through the look of colonizers. These images are mixed with other pop art and conceptual art images, depicting the hybridization we have in our history and culture. The presence of the visitor in/from other lands is the essence of the incorporation, as well as the culture shock and a series of values and precepts based on an experienced reality and the culture itself. The engravings of the post-discovery period and those more recent evoke the confrontation with the difference in points of view, incorporated in fantasies, desires and projections of the unknown place. The works raises the question ¿Quién mira quem? (who sees who?), and addresses with humor the foreign presence and look, the contamination and the cultural cannibalism.
Alameda Circuit, individual exhibition at Laboratory Arte Alameda, Mexico, June 5 to August 5, 2018.
