2018. Wilfredo Prieto 'Houses without people, people wthout houses', Annet Gelink Gallery, NL
In this work, Wilfredo Prieto actualises Guy Debord's foreseeing of ''La societé du spectacle'', pointing to the notion that society is increasingly absorbed in virtual and social media realities. As in a theatre, the contradictions of our contemporary times are staged. Common objects that belong to the everyday reality are emphasised in order to create moments of awareness, in pursuit of micro-truths.
