Descrizione Opera / Biografia
My name is Rafael Triana, a dissident Cuban artist. Cuba is a communist country, bearer of a dictatorial totalitarian system where all free thought is prohibited. Internet access has recently been installed on the island, generating a new and unique tool used by Cubans to criticize the system
The project he presented is called CARNE and it belongs to the JamaScript series. It is a series of tattoos made on drawings. The tattoos are phrases, words and expressions exposed on the net criticizing the precarious situation of Cubans. The series focuses its attention on the concept of the ephemeral and the eternal. The works try to give Cuban society a voice, embedding in the skin those words that nobody says, as if time and history had woven the truth on the skin, without asking for permission or forgiveness.
The series focuses its attention on the concept of the ephemeral and the eternal. He used the tattoo technique to play with temporality. The works are engravings of an eternal idea on a destructible material, healing an eternal discourse on a base that is not suitable for it.
