Project Description

Artist Statement

For over a decade Muu Blanco has been producing a series of works that revolve around performance. Whether they are drawings, photos, video, film, sculpture, installations, electronic music drama, his work anchors on a moment – the concept of causality, rather than the object itself.

One of his best-known works, Parlamento (1995), springs from his interest in music and his activity as a DJ. His work comments and perhaps criticizes the search of honor, power, wealth and glory. This theme is evident in several of his creations: Obviamente pelea en barrio (1998), a mud fight between women which subverted the museum space; Museo Blanco (1998), an installation presented as a nostalgic gallery of the paintings of the artist’s grandfather; Sin Títeres (1998), a video-cum-love-letter in which Blanco laments his unrequited love in the crowded Caracas subway; and Modernismo anacrónico (2000), a series of instant-therapy sculptures made from the remains of toys and recycled objects. All his proposals invariably point towards the examination of pathological forms of narcissism.

 

Declaracion del artista

Durante más de una década de Muu Blanco ha sido la producción de una serie de obras que giran en torno al desempeño. Ya se trate de dibujos, fotos, vídeo, cine, escultura, instalaciones, teatro música electrónica, sus anclas de trabajo en un momento – el concepto de causalidad, y no el objeto en sí mismo.

Una de sus obras más conocidas, de Parlamento (1995), surge de su interés por la música y su actividad como DJ. Su obra comenta y tal vez critica la búsqueda de honor, el poder, la riqueza y la gloria. Este tema es evidente en varias de sus creaciones: Obviamente pelea en el barrio (1998), una pelea de barro entre las mujeres que subvertido el espacio del museo; Museo Blanco (1998), una instalación presenta como una galería nostálgica de las pinturas del abuelo del artista; Sin Títeres (1998), un video-con-amor-carta en la que Blanco se lamenta de su amor no correspondido en el metro de Caracas abarrotado; y Modernismo anacrónico (2000), una serie de esculturas instant-terapia a base de los restos de juguetes y objetos reciclados. Todas sus propuestas invariablemente apuntan hacia la examinacion de formas patológicas de narcisismo.
