‘PÁJARO’ by Franz Caba exhibiting soon in the showroom of EL PRAN Projecten
(ORANJESTAD – June 20, 2021) EL PRAN Projecten will open a unique virtual exhibition featuring Franz Caba from the Dominican Republic.
PÁJARO by Franz Caba appropriates the pejorative to designate homosexual people in the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean islands. It proposes the relationship between the processes of violence and dehumanization of the queer identity within the Dominican/Caribbean context. PÁJARO meditates and questions verbal zoomorphism as a tool of segregation but also of identity and vindication.
Caba is an artist who plans his creative strategies through highly refined drawings, revealing through them his broad, transdisciplinary skills. For this project, he explores the video performance, where he uses a mask covered in feathers. Symbols that are directly related to the animal and identity.
Artist: Franz Caba
Curator: Nelson Gonzalez – Gerardo Zavarce
Production: Zurishaddai Tremus
