Animation in collaboration of the works by Simon Vega 

The Return of Prospero; Tales of the Crypto-Colonized” @liliana_bloch_gallery , Dallas, Texas. October 15 - December 30. The arrival of the strange, tall, technologically superior white man on the paradisiacal island of the small, savage and monstrous brown native: the encounter of the primitive and the advanced… this is the departing point for the artist’s recent body of work which comprises ephemeral sculpture, painting, animation and objects.

Drawing inspiration from the conquest and colonization of Central America, William Shakespeare’s theatrical play “The Tempest”, as well as Postcolonial and Decolonization theories, the artist develops a non-linear narrative in which the past and the future, the primitive and the developed, the native and the foreign collide.
