Shutdown


20.05.2016 In Shutdown, wastefulness is the standard of progress whatever the angle of vision. Hundreds of household appliances, cell phones, and television sets purchased on extended layaway—with or without currency restrictions—are an attempt to re-establish social calm and to legitimize order that, like a back and forth of domestication and violence, ends up imploding. Mediatization, social reality, spectacularity, the party line, and polarization: these are the abstract materials of the present that, in pursuit of a better angle, the artist places before our vision.

Templos de barrio

30.03.2019  [...] "Finding its way between agitating self-consciousness and sleepwalking automatism, Marcelo Pombo reads History and his story over and over again in an exhibition that unfolds as strangely as dreams: a series of successive stations holding particularly vivid, mystifying instants of contemplation, visionary images. The iconographies he has been treasuring throughout his extensive journey return once again but disruptively". Federico Baeza for Templos de barrio by Marcelo Pombo.
