History Belongs to the One Who Tells It

La historia es de quien la cuenta II (History Belongs to the One Who Tells It II), the most recent exhibition by artist Duvier del Dago, shows an artistic version of the relations between Cuba and the United States, whose historic shift has impressed both the public and the artists in the island.

Composed of paintings, installations and photographs, the exhibit will remain open through the summer at the Artis 718 gallery, located in the corner of 7th and 18, Miramar, Playa.

Influenced by comic strips and graphic design, this proposal dares to show a language which satirizes reality regarding the relations between Cuba and the United States.

With techniques such as charcoal, acrylic, wood and canvas, the artist recreates history from his point of view, showing with direct imagery or in a subliminal way the conventions of political power and their consequences. Likewise, he manipulates digital photography by inserting popular and religious symbols to express his disagreement.

In the installations he uses his recurring technique, which fuses manufacture with technology, since he transfers his drawings by means of a computer into three-dimensional shapes—like a sculpture resembling holograms—with threads placed with pinpoint accuracy and illuminated by laser lights or other means.

The artist explained that he treated the gallery as a house and even brought into it part of his studio, with components such as benches, windows and accessories created for his nursery.

The work of Duvier del Dago, a graduate of the Higher Instute of Art, is well-known in several countries, especially in Europe, where he has earned acknowledgements such as a Residency at the Pavillion, Palais de Paris, France.
