Everyday Museum

The series Everyday Museum presents the use of different objects from daily life and clearly manufactured in the local context. It includes wooden rulers, printed magazines, folk art toys, painted feathers, and household items. With this collection of things, the artist articulated two- and three-dimensional pieces, the former in close dialogue with the work that he began to produce in the 1970s, related to the field of painting to be discussed below. This series “forces the viewers to intensify or modify their perception of the object,” how to see something that is well-known and associated with the everyday in a different way. It is also worth underscoring how these pieces were situated, almost as if an antecedent, given contemporary artistic practices at that time, done by a new generation of artists concerned with revisiting the object in their production, whether as a readymade or as assemblages.
