Nuestras armas no hacen daño
Oxymoron. It's a strange, ugly word, but it defines the technique that Marcelo Viquez uses to stimulate the intellect, seeking our reconsideration of unresolved issues. It is a “contradictio in terminis” (the concept’s literal definition in Latin, a “contradiction in terms”), consisting of “using two concepts with opposite meanings in a single expression, thus generating a third concept". This third concept, generated in an almost Hegelian manner, is embodied in the artwork we see on display in this exhibition.
