Bio:

As a multidisciplinary artist, my work approaches the artistic processes from a critical point of view; the artist as a promoter of ideas, the political role of creators, the meaning of art pieces, the strategies that allow to bring them to life, their mechanisms of production, promotion and consumption, the efficiency of spaces assigned to art, as well as the analysis and experience of those who watch and interprets them. My work has been internationally exhibited in places as ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany; Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan; Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico; Boston Center for the Arts, Boston (MA), USA; Ayala Museum, Manila, Philippines; The Whitechapel Gallery in London; and in Biennials such as Singapore, and Havana’s The End of the World Biennial. And it is also held in collections of museums as MNCARS, MUSAC, ARTIUM, IVAM, and La Caixa, among others.

Artwork description

Museums are running out of space. There is a strong and self-perpetuating tendency that seeks to turn museums into brands within the dynamic international cultural industry. This bolsters the absurd role of ‘container’ that museums continue to self-assign today.

Museums should be sprinklers that soak everything around them; otherwise they could become spectacular entities propelled into nothingness.
