2 min read

A choice of new works by artist Nicolás Romero Escalada (beforehand featured right here). Born in Buenos Aires and at present based mostly in Madrid, Romero’s newest exhibition represents the top of a collection that emerged from months of confinement throughout the pandemic. Caught in an artist residency in Barcelona, Romero drew on recollections to create a document of his personal consumption. Rewriting the current in an effort to hook up with a overseas setting, the gathering hints towards a not-so-distant future that parallels the human and environmental challenges of our personal world:

“The gundams are an train of fusion of two occasions. The primary one has to do with my childhood in Argentina the place anime and comics represented my transition between childhood and maturity. However in addition they present the context of the 90’s in Argentina with a globalized, privatized and imported economic system the place the objects I consumed got here from all around the world. The development of my id grew to a sure extent, in parallel with the beginnings of the worldwide shopper tradition…. I retake that childhood expertise to symbolize my migration from Argentina to Spain. These contemplations are a method of seeing and recording the brand new world round me…. I invite the viewer to mirror on the connection between previous and current, id and migration, in addition to resistance and transformation in an infinitely globalized world.”
