2006. Wilfredo Prieto. OUROBOROS (2005.12 / theoretical data)

This project questions power, as an institution of order and control, from its own scaffolding. Conditioned on appearance, on overlapping camouflage, on correspondence between objects and reality, as an artistically “minimal” operation to detonate and underline its conceptual strategy.

Ouroboros, as the mythical image of a snake biting its tail, recontextualized to challenge today’s social structure from the philosophical order; thereby causing an estrangement, to season interaction from its own symbolic charge; seeking to compact interpretative possibilities, concealing itself in a visual impact, starting from the formal scale itself, and its everyday condition.
