The proposal covers models, sculptures and photo installations that search into the conflicts of the current world through architectural codes, a recurrent motive for the creator.
The title of the exhibition, according to its curator, Corina Matamoros, has its origin in a fragment of an installation where Garaicoa uses cut blankets to create inscriptions of urban fences.
In the catalogue of the exhibition the well known Cuban architect Mario Coyula values the work by Garaicoa and analyzes its relationships with architecture.
Born in Havana in 1967 and graduated from the Higher Art Institute from his birth city, Garaicoa has one of his pieces exhibited in the permanent collection from the National Reina Sofia Art Center Museum, in Spain .
His work has been exhibited in the Contemporary Art Museum from Los Angeles, United States and in important exhibition centers from Switzerland, Germany, Canada and Brazil , among other countries.
