NEOPORTRAITS OF IDENTITY

A concern that Gildo Medina explores when leaving the conventional support is to integrate art as part of the speech of our daily environment, through works that we can carry, ergonomic pieces which dialogue with the world as they are not fixed to a wall or a base, portable pieces that tell stories and follow the movement of the collector’s body. Either through hidden words of symbolic elements that are not so easy to decipher at first sight, or from the surface itself that he chooses as support, some of these are utilitarian objects which we coexist in our daily life, based on their use: bags, shoes or different clothes whose nature gives new readings to the work of art.

Our personality transforms according to the environment in which we are, our behavior and how we relate to each other, is different in the intimacy of a family space than in a public or someone else’s space; we are a social landscape that changes with the context, like the pieces that shape the nucleus of Gildo Medina’s work, they as well mutate with the walking of the collector who carries them, pieces that go out to the world to close the cycle of their message with the context, turning the carrier themself a part of the speech of the neoportrait.
