The Dead Weight Performance Series will present two evenings of performance by four invited artists, bookending the inaugural exhibition group show The New [New] Corpse, at Sector 2337. The exhibition regards a return to the figure. This trend echoes the earlier “crisis of the figure” theme in representational painting, while also resonating with newer questions of posthumanism, capitalist critiques, and the transformation of hierarchies, precipitating a “return” of a figure that seems distorted, grotesque, modified, or emphatically absent

On the afternoon and evening of September 12, Cuban-born and Cannonball Artist-in-Residence Carlos Martiel will produce Sentence, a new performance that reacts to his unnerving encounter with the urban and social experience of contemporary Miami, particularly in the neighborhood of Overtown. Known for performances that explore the coercive interactions between the individual and the state, particularly as these revolve around race and Afro-Atlantic heritage, Martiel has shifted slightly the space of his concerns: from identity to concrete economic conditions; from autobiography to social narrative; from the kind of inscription on the body that a centralized state produces to another one that results from the more diffuse forces of economic disparity

For his performance “Punto de Fuga” (“Vanishing Point”), performance artist Carlos Martiel referenced Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man” (circa 1490). This drawing was regarded as the symbol for symmetry of the human body, which Da Vinci believed to be an analogy for the function of the universe. By interpreting the drawing with his own body, Martiel challenged the Western cultural notion frequently seen in art history that the caucasian man is the center around which contemporary society revolves. The performance reflected on multiculturalism in history, specifically on periods of time in which Westerners have invaded other cultures of the world.

Carlos Martiel is a provocative 25-year-old Cuban performance artist who currently lives in Miami. With his newest project for CIFO, “Condecoración Martiel, Carlos,” Martiel raises the issue of race relations in Cuba and what it’s like to be a black man on the island with unconventional materials like human skin fused with metal.

A

“To speak about racism in Cuba is to speak about a real problem because there has never been a possibilty to develop a collective consciousness against discrimination,” Martiel said.

The title of the exhibition refers to the development of that which is imagined and the symbolic production of shared images. Although we are accustomed to identifying images that correspond with one specific culture or identity as if they were each clearly differentiated, in reality, imaginaries in themselves are uncertain entities: that which “we do not know or are about to know.” A fleeting imaginary points out a redundancy because the imagined cannot be fixed; it is something which is in permanent displacement. Although they may be as divergent as they are coincidental, the proposals for CIFO’s 2014 Grants & Commissions Program exhibition have been gathered under the redundancy of this title to highlight this aspect that is a common ground among them: the idea of ​​continuous displacement that transpires in different ways.
