MAAS Performance Presents

“RAW” by Deborah Castillo

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015 at 7:30pm

 

MAAS | Mandragoras Art Space is proud to present Venezuelan artist Deborah Castillo on her first solo performance in New York City.

RAW is a performance and installation piece based on sculpture and video. In a series of actions, Castillo explores the persistence of patriarchy and challenges the construction and deconstruction of history. Throughout history, we have supported the image of the hero, which continues to dominate us. The artist creates a critical space to question and transform this mythological “face of power.”

Castillo employs different mediums, incorporating performance, video, photography, sculpture and site specific installation, in order to dissect the grand idea of power, its structures, and its weight on sexuality, social expectations, desire, identity and the construction of contemporary myth.
