nude affiliation & portraiture

Pepney Gallery, Cavan, Ireland

Opening 7th of April 2021 at 7 pm GMT (live on Facebook and Instagram simultaneously).

7th of April - 7th of March 2021 (will continue as online exhibition on the galleries website)

This exhibition focuses on nude as well portrait art works to examine the enduring challenge of and fascination with the depiction of the self, from the perspective of both artist and subject

From full-scale paintings to intimate photography, jewel-like statuettes to large scale moving digital works, they contrast idealized beauty with the aging body, and public images with more intimate, private works. The nude affiliation & portraiture exhibition explores also important changes in contemporary terms, by a selection of exquisite works. Together, they offer an insight into a visual tradition that became central to European art, which still resonates with artists and audiences today.

7th International Biennial of Performance, - "Emancipation"

7th International Biennial of Performance, - "Emancipation"

30 January - 8 March 2021

My two videos "bare to you and me" and "conecta-no conecta " was shown in the 7th International Biennial of Performance, on the 30 and 31 of January 2021 at Sala E, Cinemateca Bogota, Bogota, Colombia.

Both videos were also presented on 2nd and 10th of February on the website of PerfoArtNet

Art has shown that it allows to liberate, point out, question, criticize and transform beings, minds and contexts, for this reason the VII Biennial is a space where art, body and thought. They reflect on emancipation; which is the act of liberating or freeing oneself from a person, circumstance, rule or control system. So we invite you to peacefully emancipate yourself with artistic-bodily events that make it easier for us to reflect on what is happening in our social environment. The use of the body and art are fundamental in the claim of many rights, it seems that the world is sick and we need to heal it with small and large actions.

In these times of the pandemic many people become aware of the restrictions of the “usual”. Those things which were taken for granted before receive suddenly an unusual status. Time seems to be paralyzed, set in quarantine – or is it just a paradigm shift?
