El artista entre la individualidad y el contexto


At the Cuban Pavilion, four Cuban artists (Luis Gómez Armenteros, Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo, Grethell Rasúa and Celia-Yunior) along with four international artists (Lida Abdul, Olga Chernysheva, Lin Yilin and Giuseppe Stampone) highlight the imaginary and reflexive range of the artist, precariously balanced between the distinctive poles of individuality and the context in which they happen to be working.

Dominadora inmaterial [Inmaterial Domme]
SecondLife. 2012-2013

For almost a year I have been practising financial domination (FinDom) in the virtual world. I have an avatar in Second Life...

... She is my alter ego, a dominant woman who has financial slaves and submissive men. The relationship with my subs is virtual and they let me drain their wallets and ruin them financially.

Grethell Rasúa
We confront things without fear, loving at all costs could be a strategy for living with all those external antagonisms that cause us so much pain, saturation, reluctance.

Grethell Rasúa
This work is the result of decisions I took as a way of life; it shows my attitude and I think about it as a reminder in order to face hurtful situations with my best intentions.

Olga Chernysheva
Chernysheva’s work spans film, photography, drawing and object-based mediums, where she draws on quotidian moments and marginal spaces from everyday life...

... as a way of exploring the increasing fragmentation of master narratives in contemporary culture.

Lida Abdul
This video is set in the outskirts of Kabul, where the landscape is disseminated with the debris of more than twenty years of war and constant bombings.

Lida Abdul
It’s not unusual to see children playing around the remains of military tanks and planes that look like the carcass of a bird.

Giuseppe Stampone
... One of the first forms of services privatization were the Casas Particulares, literally “Private Houses”: accommodation for tourists inside Cuban families’ homes.
