Beyond of the metaphor. The utility sense in six artworks from Cuba
Artist talk by Grethell Rasúa (Havana, Cuba), organized by Marina Grzinic, Post Conceptual Study Program (IBK).
“Generally I work with the reformulation of judgments of aesthetic, ethical and economic values: with what we understand culturally as good or bad, right or not, the way we perceive the beauty or ugliness of things. I use various means of expression and documentation: performance, objects, jewelry, photography, video, environment, site specific, drawings and installations, as evidence of human activity on the context in which I live.” - Grethell Rasúa
