Jesús Hdez-Güero
Minutos de odio contra sí mismo

Minutos de odio contra sí mismo (Minutes of hate against itself) is a simple and powerful work about the political situation in Venezuela, replacing the stars on the flag with bullet holes. A meditation on the disillusionment of the people towards the government and nationalism. The precision of the marksman is impressive, as if “drawing” or re-making the representation of the symbol within a contemporary reality and climate.

Jesús Hdez-Güero attended the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, Havana, between 1999 and 2003 and received his degree in Fine Arts from Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA). Interested in "the capacity of the art to use and reorganize existing social forms, cultural models that can be infinitely reactualizable,” his work is not limited to a specific artistic medium, but depends on the idea to develop. His works have been exhibited internationally at the Concrete Space Project, Miami, USA; the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (MACRO), Italy; the Basque Center for Contemporary Art Artium), Vitoria, Spain (2015); the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada; among many others.
