DOES MIKE WAZOWSKI WINK OR BLINK?
JUAN PABLO VIDAL – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
We had the opportunity to meet Juan Pablo Vidal early November, his work revolves around the psychology of human understanding, which primarily absorbs the languages of advertising, cinema, and the contemporary art market, proposing peculiar seduction mechanisms by shaping a universe where things are not what they seem.
As our Artist in Residence, Juan Pablo worked for a week creating and following randomness around the hotel, leaving behind a fabulous blue plasticine sculpture with the sole purpose of relieving stress, or just for the pleasure of staving a hammer, a fork, or your hand in a mushy surface. He also divided into textile art creating tie dye curtains, lamps and slippers for the room he intervened. All of this happened while outside hell broke loose trying to find the famous meme dog, pasting propaganda all over the hotel, creating a beautiful colorful mural.
If you want to see and feel how Juan Pablo’s mind works please dive into this beautiful collage of thoughts.
