Anatomía de un disidente (Anatomy of a dissident)
Adiós Utopía: Dreams and Deceptions in Cuban Art Since 1950, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, USA.
Curated by Gerardo Mosquera, René Francisco, Elsa Vega, and Olga Viso.
This work reflects on the repression suffered by opposition groups in Cuba, who are always exposed to arbitrary detention, harassment, and violence. These groups are seldom defended by the power structures engaged in their crackdown. Anatomy of a dissident alludes to the lack of human rights that dissidents voices confront within the island.
I stand in the gallery dressed in white. A man is paid to destroy the clothes on my body until he leaves me naked.
