25 years of Galleria Continua. Group show
Galleria Continua continues celebrating its 25th anniversary with exhibitions in Paris and now in Habana. In this case the Centro Wifredo Lam will be hosting a group exhibition of 15 international artists that are part of the gallery program.
Garaicoa will be participating in this exhibition with the piece Deleuze & Guattari Fixing the Rhizome, 2008. An installation of hundreds of hammers growing and expanding like a climbing plant over the walls of the Wifredo Lam Center. This organism that seems like its alive, forms a viral system of wood and steel over the concrete walls. A formal multiplicity careless of a starting point, a constructive complexity that alludes the philosophical concept raised by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari as an epistemology model. Carlos Garaicoa continues to postulate the image and its political power as a metaphor of the subversive capacity of the art. These tools support a precarious balance on architecture, tensing ideas like order, centrality or power, establishing a suggestive parallelism with social structure.
