Pequod Co. presents We are sorry to notify you that due to the end of the world your
package has been delayed, by Andrew Roberts (Tijuana, 1995), from November 21, 2020 until
January 16, 2021. A provocative show that rethinks the figure of the undead.

The exhibition investigates the transit of what we understand as rotten meat through
two materials: skin and silicon. A tattoo can be a codex to invoke dismembered
memories while a computer’s processor is the portal to reanimate voices confined to
the liminal factory of the beyond. What contemporary fears and anxieties about the
undead do we harbor in our imagination? The artist responds with the proper make-up
of loins that are too creepy for Netflix.

Roberts’ work is comprised by a series of carnal silicone sculptures, reminiscent of a
low-budget Mexican gore film, as if they were the black ink imprints of memories
emanating from an endriago imaginary. The undead in this show have been generated
by a computer programmed to resurrect the voices of bodies trapped between the
corporate advertisement and the undead. They are the poems, monologues and

intimate soliloquies of a cadaverous interiority or the performance that arises post-
mortem. Roberts’ carnal prostheses appear as the empty corporealities of the parasitic

and as the bloody containers of everything that refuses to die.
We are sorry to notify you that due to the end of the world your package has been
delayed anchors its production on the historical transformation of the undead — a
cultural constant shaped by the most visceral concerns of each era, from war events to
biopolitical realities. The artist explores how the cinematographic and video game
industries have built a hegemonic perspective in which the figure of the zombie and the
horror genre are traversed by racial and colonial phenomena to later be
instrumentalized for economic propaganda and imperial purposes.
