Synopsis:
Carlos Garaicoa (born 1967) addresses the politics and ideologies of his native Cuba through an examination of its architecture. After the 1959 Cuban revolution, many architectural projects and buildings were left unfinished or abandoned in the nation's cities. Adopting Havana as his laboratory, Garaicoa creates provocative visual commentaries on such themes as architecture's ability to alter the course of history, the failure of modernism as a catalyst for social change and the frustration and decay of twentieth-century utopias. Garaicoa makes his critiques through large installations using materials such as crystal, wax candles and rice-paper lamps: in "Bend City" (2007), the artist constructed a city entirely from cut paper, and "The Crown Jewels" (2009) consists of miniature replicas of real-life torture centers, prisons and intelligence networks, all cast in silver. This publication includes new and recent works, and demonstrates the breadth of Garaicoa's witty articulations of architecture and urbanism.

Book Description: Edizioni Charta Srl, Italy, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Ism. 250 x 310 mm. Brand New Book. This is a superbly illustrated overview of the work of Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa. Carlos Garaicoa belongs to a generation of artists emerging from Cuba, whose multi-faceted practice and challenging works weave a line between sculpture, photography, drawing, video, installation, and urban interventions. Overlapping documents his continuing exploration of the importance of architecture as a means to deconstruct the complexity of the socio-political and historical narrative of a city. In his work, the city acts as a metaphor not only for the nature of the human condition but as an allegory of the failure of 20thC ideologies. Fascinated by urban planning and a city s architectural social fabric, Garaicoa often illustrates his vision in large installations using various materials such as crystal, wax candles and rice-paper lamps.
