PTY: Coctel Inaugural: Palo Enceba ‘O Jose Manuel Castrellón

January 12, 2017 @ 7:00 AM - 9:00 PM

¿Existe un acto creativo más trascendente para el Panamá republicano que aquel gestado el 9 de enero de 1964? A riesgo de sus vidas, unos estudiantes treparon la “frontera” con el antiguo enclave colonial para transformar un poste de luz en gigantesco mástil clamando soberanía. El tremendo poder visual, simbólico, ético y político de ese acto irrumpió en nuestro imaginario colectivo para quedarse. En su nuevo conjunto de obras, José Castrellón se apropia de ciertos elementos constitutivos de esta gesta histórica —de maneras tan elocuentes como atrevidas— para incitarnos a reflexionar sobre cuán ambigua es la soberanía panameña y cómo afecta a unos y a otros dentro del territorio nacional. Así, el artista convierte el poste-mástil del 9 de Enero en el popular palo ensebado y la bandera panameña en un cebo cargado de significados explosivos.

Is there a more transcendent creative act for Republican Panama than that created on January 9, 1964? At the risk of their lives, some students climbed the “border” with the old colonial enclave to transform a pole of light into a giant mast crying for sovereignty. The tremendous visual, symbolic, ethical and political power of that act burst in our collective imagination to stay. In his new set of works, José Castrellón appropriates certain constitutive elements of this historical gesture, in eloquent and daring ways, to incite us to reflect on how ambiguous Panamanian sovereignty is and how it affects each other within the national territory. Thus, the artist turns the post-mast of January 9 in the popular stick battered and the Panamanian flag in a bait loaded with explosive meanings.
