Jesús Hdez-Güero

Born in 1983 in Havana, Cuba
Live and works between Venezuela and Cuba

I am interested in the capacity of art to utilize and reorganize existing social forms and cultural models that can be updated infinitely. I intend that my work will have a double impact and validity; merit in the plane of art as well as in the social dominion.  It must become a platform of communication and expansion of specific phenomena and of the principal contradictions and socio-cultural forces of those areas that are not made evident, lack transparency, or are hidden, and in the end the work must remain as an archive of these “social invisibilities”.
