Ugly Enemies

Ugly Enemies is a site-specific intervention that makes use of the functional elements of the gallery, including the elevator, the stairs, the window, and the fake marble tiles, as devices that actively conduct the visitor’s movement through the space. The exhibition operates as a type of membrane that overlays the spaces of the gallery; a site that the works inhabit and in which they are transformed. The transformations on the space give off an erratic vitality, to the point that the exhibition functions as a set for the video El Que Monta Cargas. This video uses the current condition of art, in which most exhibitions are seen online, and pushes it further: the exhibition is deformed, observed, and rearranged by lights or optical distortion, Ugly Enemies in order to bring Ugly Enemies to the screen, and cast the space and material conditions of the gallery as central characters in its representation.
