Retro-Expectatives
One of the works of the Spanish artist Fernando Sánchez Castillo in his exhibition Retro-Expectatives is a “mental map”, a representation of the history of the American Statue of Liberty, based on personal perception, own experiences and (hidden) information.Lady Liberty’ is a monument that symbolizes freedom. In his work Sánchez Castillo wonders how art can contribute to revising existing icons, undermining and loading them with new meanings. The exhibition is an ode to the power of constructive protest and the attempt to reset memory, as it were. Retro-Expectatives is an invitation to think about history as fiction, as a construction that must be revised time after time.
