Work in progress/ Public Intervention. Small pieces of blank paper embedded in the cracks of a building on the façade line of the traditional Malecón of Havana (Cuba),
Our turbulent present demands an increasingly acute view of the nation's sociocultural heritage. The complex exercise of choosing between forgetting and conserving is a key factor today when thinking about the model of country being built. Adentro (Inside) debates the issue of inheritance; it consist of a public intervention on one of the buildings on the façade line of the traditional Malecón of Havana (Cuba), the architectural crust of the hodgepodge of rocks and life which is the city in it's totally. The action planned by the artist pursues to contain the essence and vitality of a building, a volumen, a body. Small pieces of paper cover the main cracks in the building, seeking to preserve it from the overpowering passage of days and hours. Because of its metaphorical power, this gesture spreads to the rest of the environs, which are totally besieged by the same decrepitude. By using ruin as a motif, the artist falls within the vein of clearly critical, profoundly poetic thinking with a kind of anthropological affiliation.
