Statement

A symbol of coastal environments and seaside resorts was used, but, by placing it in an urban context with the purpose of surprising the viewer, producing confusion when finding this allegedly de-contextualized object in a space that, symbolically, has required a “life preserver.” The piece alludes to an intrinsic phenomenon in the ideology of Cubans, a phenomenon that links them to the sea, and the latter as way of change, whether for good or for evil.
