Templos de barrio


30.03.2019  [...] "Recently, while chatting with Pombo in his studio, he confessed to me that to him creating art was always like doing drag: a state of transfiguration and arousal, obtaining an experience of instant exuberance. Not feeling particularly beautiful he felt glamorous. Not having money he believed he was rich. Glitter, that omnipresent Ariadne’s thread in his career, transformed into gold. That way he got to turn injury into pride, sadness into happiness; ultimately, the promise of a different life that gets realized in the closest here and now. Through this process, a task which belongs to art and religions, he allowed himself to disrupt sexual, gender and class divisions and invert every classification. In his visionary, hallucinatory image, the advent of the inversion of every order is happening right now". Federico Baeza for Templos de barrio by Marcelo Pombo.
