Curated by Carla Donauer
Participating artists Sol Calero
Throughout Sol Calero’s practice, the artist approaches the aesthetics, craftwork, and architecture of Latin American countries as a multi-faceted subject. On the surface, her work appears as a celebration of un-canonized modes of art-making outside of the Western narrative. At the same time, she observes the very same imagery as a cliché, formed in the eyes of the Western outsider, which homogenises and exoticises a tumultuous actuality into a series of pleasant, bright and understandable icons.
Sol Calero will develop a new site specific work for the exhibition at Kunsthal Extra City.
