Frank David Valdes (*1985, Havana)

Artist Statement:

Fables is a series of works that speak to us in a figurative sense, developed as a symbolic representation of absence as a concept and manifest of an emerging reality. The figures assume positions as patterns from the formal and conceptual. They propose to reevaluate the dialogue with the past, present and future from a self-referential sensitivity. Given the circumstances and conditions, we could say that they are a mirror of time. Each event triggers a storm, a bit of the butterfly effect. These notions or qualities are alluded to by devices of creative intermittence: family, memory, ideals, freedom, existential narcissism are a laboratory of impulses. Stereotypes and their conceptualization are being registered a little, the need to alert systems of archetypal representations seen in a subjective context, enhanced by the crisis.

Adrian Socorro (*1979, Matanzas, Cuba)

Artist Statement:

In ‘El perro de Oggún | Oggún’s Dog’ the play focuses on the individual in isolation. The self-sacrifice as a social being of entrusting oneself to a confinement at home, where that space of retreat and rest can become at the same time as a zone of reflection and self-absorption. EL PERRO DE OGGUN is a work that addresses sacrifice as a theme, supporting the title from Afro-Cuban religions, as a symbol of resistance to quarantine from faith.

‘Partir de la granja | Start from the Farm’ addresses resistance and uncertainty. The desire to escape, to escape from everything.

Lisandra Isabel García López (*1989, Cuba)

Artist Statement:

In my works I build, in an almost autobiographical way, an introspective world where my imagination and my fantasies are displayed. This self-referential component is marked by an evasive attitude that does not translate into apathy, but rather in a conscious reconversion of my reality. Specifically in Dangerous Relationships, I use the traditional concept of the nude, the use of the mirror, and the appropriation of a modern work in art history: Dangerous Relationships or Dangerous Friendships, by René Magritte. I integrate the image of this painting into my underwear with the intention of establishing a parallel between the past and the present. In this way I intend to transfer its sensuality and delicacy to the present, rescuing certain values, sometimes absent in contemporary life. In the context of the crisis generated by Covid-19, that space for introspection and reflection marked by social distancing has become vital. Dangerous relationships invites us to look at ourselves, to probe our personal world, our environment, our intimacy, our body, our ideal of beauty; and finally, to meditate on what will happen with regard to interpersonal relationships “when it’s all over ”.
