Loidys Carnero

Cuba | 1982 | Performance, Photography, Spatial

Loidys Carnero (La Habana, 1982) investigates Dutch design from the standpoint of his personal experience as a foreigner. By connecting his artistic practice (earlier Do-It-Yourself furniture pieces made out of Dutch DIY books) with the idea of “adjustment”, he upgrades his personal position to a cultural and social level that actualizes the situation of immigrants in Europe nowadays without morality. Carnero’s passion for pragmatism, tutorials and craftsmanship has become a critical and creative statement. Throughout the production of his recent sculptures he decontextualize materials in order to expose their symbolic, cultural, and historical significance, but also responding to his own location and using local materials.
