Carlos Castro, Legion, 2011. Giant music box and knives.
The music box shown here plays a traditional Roman war melody, and the knives Castro collects are confiscated from Bogotá police.
This week, guest curator Mariangela Méndéz presents a series of works by contemporary Colombian artists. The selection is linked by the recognition, recycling, and re-articulation of vernacular and cultural objects or materials within precise aesthetic practices.
