Adán Vallecillo talks about his workSaturday, February 9, 2019
Hello, my name is Adán Vallecillo, I’m participating in the show Portadores de sentido with the work Municiones, which comes from a wider body of work in which I was interested in exploring the idea of asepsis in its socio-political dimensions. I grew up on the border of Honduras and Nicaragua during the 1980s, in a territory occupied by the counter-revolutionary militias, which were financed by the government of the United States to combat the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua. In the work, asepsis appears linked to militarization, this compulsive obsession of power to silence and eliminate whatever is in its way, whatever bothers it, whatever dissents.
