Delirio Exótico #3 by Paloma Castello
From Exotic Delirium series
Photographic print on cotton paper
32.6 in. H x 47.2 in. W x 0.1 in. D
Edition : 3/5 + 1AP
Castello's “Exotic Delirium” series pays tribute to the constant hybridization and miscegenation, to the richness that springs from the intersection of different universes, to the possibility of cohabitation and the need for adaptation, and to the landscape as a historical and dynamic unit... Dreams in which reality and fiction are interwoven, since, as Michel Foucault put it: "There is the possibility of making fiction work in truth, of inducing the effects of truth through fictional discourse, and from this truthful discourse to arouse, manufacture, something that does not yet exist, in other words, create fiction."
Paloma Castello born in 1988 Bogotá, Colombia.
She Uses her work to bring life to a different narrative to an object’s past. She is interested in playing with memory and relating it to the present, creating an atmosphere between reality and fiction. Her family and social background have a powerful influence on her work. She grows up surrounded by objects and anecdotes inherited from her ancestors, those objects inspire endless surreal stories. Her work emerges from these experiences; they are evidence of her “auto-fiction”.
Based in: Bogotá, Colombia
Paloma Castello born 1988 Bogotá, Colombia.
I use my work to bring life or a different narrative to an object’s past. I’m interested in playing with memory and relating it to the present, creating an atmosphere between reality and fiction. My family and social background have a powerful influence on my work. I grew up surrounded with objects and anecdotes inherited from my ancestors that inspire endless surreal stories. My work emerges from these experiences; they are evidence of my “auto-fiction”.
"Paloma Castello presents to us a nostalgia-filled body of work. The collection represents the soul of her proposal: inherited objects discovered or found that have become the tip of the iceberg of her past. These are elements she collects, recollects and then classifies following a method that frames her anachronic attitude that proves as evidence of the youth of her art.
She also demonstrates that the experimentations on herself are common in an artist who’s just beginning her career. Without a doubt, this resource, valid and true becomes the road that determines the experimental character of the author.
