Margaritas

Built from implied metaphors this exhibition was framed by the multiple meanings of the word “Margarita” which can be a name, a drink, a snake, a knot… in sailing is used for reducing a rope in length without cutting it. Considering this, each work in the space is presented as a bond that ties two moments: the things that already exist and the mutation of these existences as a continuation of themselves, in a sequence of operations that are based on sculptural, pictorial and narrative principles. (Show in Sketch gallery, Bogotá. November 2015).
