Garaicoa shows sculptures, drawings and installations specially produced for the solo show at Galeria Luisa Strina, focusing on modernist architecture and the paradoxes between the beauty of the utopian urban landscape and the efforts and manual labor involved in its construction (both historically and daily – in the artist’s own process of creation). The exhibition is composed of 4 “work tables” in which the artist painted enlarged Oscar Niemeyer blueprints; these works are titled Power, Justice, Dance and Death. Around this set, the artist installs drawings of wires connected by nails and old rulers, directly on the wall. These also allude to the modernist architecture and the ideals of this unfinished civilizational project, especially in Latin America. New works from the Puzzles series, which began in 2018, complete the exhibition, in which photographs of the urban landscape of pre-socialist Cuba (enlarged on pieces of puzzles in bluish tones) give place, in part of the surface where the puzzle collapsed, to the black and white image of the same places photographed nowadays, installed as a second layer under the puzzle.
