JOSÉ LEÓN CERRILLO
Thursday November 12th, the fifth event of the Undisciplined Interludes series was held. Mexican artist José León Cerrillo revisits his project Oh My Cannibal and presents his site-specific installation Carne at LIGA’s Penthouse.
Oh My Cannibal took as its starting point the figure of the Cannibal proposed by Oswald de Andrade in his Manifesto Eating (1928) transposed to local considerations, particularly central iconographies of the construction of the Mexican modernity. Thus, the project you met in a sort of index references to Mario Pani, University City and the Sculptoric Space of Mathias Goeritz, resolved as:
1. serigraphs on paper and acetate in a rack poster, which were interrupted, completed and encimaban to be seen and / or swallowed
2. A structure taking proportions of the buildings collapsed by Multifamiliar Juarez demolished after the 1985 earthquake, which served as inspíration for a poem by Augusto de Campos
3. a blocked window with lime and water in the way in which black works are done
