PR, 2019
PR is a video-installation derived from a performance orchestrated by the artist in which a pre-recorded concert and live performance was announced and presented to the Bogota public as an "official" presentation of the Russian collective Pussy Riot. The work is based on an incident in 2018 in which Pussy Riot was presented at the official festival "Rock Al Parque" using "doubles" under the slogan "Anyone can be Pussy Riot." PR uses this invitation as an open source for insert a series of questions about professionalized revolution, the symbiotic relations of Pussy Riot and other revolutionary icons with the imperialist practices of the USA, the role of the CIA in contemporary art, modern propaganda, and fake news. Throughout the piece —from the lyrical content to the reaction of the public— the level of deception to which we are accustomed as receivers of media and news increasingly constructed on fiction is revealed.
