Art Exhibition: Marta María Pérez’s “Peticiones”


Marta María Pérez’s “Peticiones” has been on view at Galería La Acacia since November 24, and will continue through January 19, 2018. The gallery is located at No. 512 18th Street (between /5th and 7th Avenues) in Miramar, Playa, Havana, Cuba.

Description: Marta María Pérez’s approach to the religious systems of Afro-Cuban origin and the spiritualist praxis is an intimate, personal approach, but also—and above all—an approach that contemplates the other as a fundamental element of the passage that is composed or remembered. One of the central axes of her poetics resides precisely in this duality: to emerge from the self-referential component (which involves her own body as content and depository) and to allude and understand an Other, whether individual or collective, unknown or familiar. This presence, which in most cases does not have an explicit corporality within the frame, materializes in the work because it usually inhabits the symbolic and spiritual coordinates of Marta herself.
