Schisme
Installation, Muca Roma Mexico, 2010


In Greek mythology, there were the worshipers of Dionysus and those of Apollo. There were at the theater of Delphes the actors on the stage and the public in the crowd, each one answered and played the part to be seen. It is a Nietzschean concept that in the birth of tragedy opposes those who are watched and those who watch. As we can find with the mariachis in Mexico that surrounds people, those who listen are at the center, and participate with.

This installation illustrates this duality, the inseparability of the exterior (perfection, representation) with the interior (pulsions, viscera), showing the inevitable schism that operates in every human being. On one side the mirrors, golden rectangles, and on the other the rubbish, dead branches and trash painted in gold. An imaginary balance.
