dario

 

Dario Escobar’s Quetzalcoatl is currently being featured in the Confusion in the Vault exhibition curated by Paris-based adviser Patricia Marshall, at the opening of Museo Jumex in Mexico City.  This exhibition features works from the Jumex Foundation including pieces by Sarah Lucas, Mike Kelley, Richard Prince, Paul McCarthy, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Gabriel Kuri, Santiago Sierra, and a Richard Jackson cage piece titled Confusion in the Vault Room (2005), giving its name to the show.

For Quetzalcoatl, Escobar investigates the semiotics of the object in the arena of sports.  Confiscated, manipulated and reconfigured, the sports object stop being part of identifiable structures to become symbols that question the dynamics of power and challenge notions such as competition, success and failure, virility, social status, and national pride.

Quetzalcoatl, de Dario Escobar, está sendo apresentada na exposição Confusion in the Vault, sob curadoria da conselheira baseada em Paris Patricia Marshall, na abertura do Museo Jumex na Cidade do México. Esta exposição apresenta obras da Fundação Jumex incluindo peças de Sarah Lucas, Mike Kelley, Richard Prince, Paul McCarthy, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Gabriel Kuri, Santiago Sierra, e uma gaiola de Richard Jackson intitulada Confusion in the Vault Room (2005), emprestando seu nome para a mostra.

Em Quetzalcoatl, Escobar investiga a semiótica do objeto na arena dos esportes. Confiscado, manipulado e reconfigurado, o objeto esportivo deixa de ser parte de estruturas identificáveis ??para tornar-se símbolos que questionam a dinâmica do poder e das noções de desafio como a concorrência, o sucesso e o fracasso, virilidade, status social, e orgulho nacional.
