MAURICIO GARRIDO :: LAOCOONTE

STATEMENT

 

Laocoonte is a tragic figure of the Trojan War: he was the one who, with his children, tried to warn the Trojan King Priam about the deception of the giant horse left by the Greeks on the beach, but the gods, in order to silence him, sent two monstrous serpents from the sea which devoured him and his children. For me, Laocoonte may be associated with the voices of those who predict the end of the world, the coming of the Catastrophe and of the end devastation, and who are silenced by the awful sound of a world that devours itself.

The world of visual artist Mauricio Garrido (Santiago de Chile, 1974) is surreal, lush and obscure at the same time. His work was often categorized as neo-Baroque, and includes various media such as sculpture, collage, textiles and video art. His research reviews the codes of representation throughout art history, and is particularly focused on the figure of allegory as a method of a synthesized storytelling. His artistic production has been exhibited in Europe, Asia and Latin America and his work is in several private collections, such as the Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, Mexico, and singer and collector of Elton John. The real dromers surely remember that this is not his first “inspired by DROME” time: he already made an artwork for the Love issue
