Ciudad de Cartón

Exhibition in a private house. November 2008.

Galería Daniel Morín’s first exhibition is Ciudad de Cartón. It refers to the national growth and the developed image attempted to be spread, but that really is a poor and unstable growth that leaves behind the local reality of Chile as a confused and unbalanced country, located in South America drifting from the West. From this perspective the artists made a show of real sized Nike shoes, done with cardboard and found materials, watercoloured soccer posters, a mural of the car brand Lada (sponsor of the 1991’s Copa Libertadores soccer tournament champion, Colo Colo) made with enamel, and an audiovisual show that aired old local tv transmissions, recorded in VHS without edition.
