Santiago de Chile, 1984
José Caerols "Yisa", develops his proposal in relation to the application of power and control over ideas such as identity, territory or migration, and how this friction and force present capacities that define affective, social and political constructions, showing themselves as archaeological representations of a historical system that today is in definition.
Symbolically speaking, it seeks through the research and production field, to give origin and weight to a chain between acts, forms, signs and images, reconfiguring this chain into a visual production that accounts for the latent processes of the themes addressed by each investigation such as ruin, society or work.
Presenting ourselves as a social vein that is linked to economic systems and social relations, analyzing the flaws, precariousness and the fragile balance of power existing in labor relations. Caerols has presented his work at Mario Kreuzberg Gallery (DE), Tecla Sala (ES), CCCB (ES), Santa Fe Gallery (CO), Braga Menéndez Gallery (AR), María José Jove Foundation (ES), Wschodnia Gallery (PL ), the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chile (CL), Animal Gallery (CL), Die Ecke Gallery (CL), Tudor Room, Matucana 100 (CL), among others.
