A reunion from the religious syncretism.
Three pieces of large dimensions in which the traditional and the contemporary are interspersed, having as a starting point the elements that make up the religiosity inherited from Africa in communion with the European, is one of the most attractive points of the proposal of the creator Jorge J Gutiérrez Salomón.
Emerged from “The way of the ancestors”, these creations that are exhibited in the Palace of Justice as part of the XIII Biennial of Havana (in its sub – headquerters in Matanzas city) return to retake the installative structures (vegetal fibers and charcoal) with which the conjugation of visual and tactile textures is achieved in harmony and synchronization with the other elements that make up each of these scenes.
The material and the Art Povera constitute a segment of a narrative that imbricates not only religious beliefs but also encloses a part of the national history of Cuba.
Through a particular worldview; the author of these pieces leads us to a universe of meaning and signifiers, of readings that require from the viewer certain competencies to understand the message of what he is observing before him.
