EL HIERRO Y EL TABACO
In collaboration with LLANO (Mexico City) and CCA Andratx, KEWENIG presents the first solo exhibition of Noé Martínez (b. 1986, Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico). His work of speaks from the memory of the colonial past of his native Mexico to reconsider a historical narrative, which from his point of view must be contextualised and understood from new perspectives. Through ethnographic research and his own memory and family history, the multidisciplinary artist creates works that translate into sculpture, writing, photography, sound, video and performance. Martínez offers a critical look at the interpretation of the colonial past of the Huasteca culture and the consequent construction of its present.
