I am part of that language.</p><p>I have developed my most recent series Mannequin with the same language of </p><p>metaphors and the use of some iconic visual figures present in the magical realistic</p><p>world, which I touched some years back in my creative process. This concept</p><p>returns in Mannequin, to be updated and fused with the dilemmas of the society</p><p>within the modern world. An example of these dilemmas is the loss of the essence</p><p>of what is natural and human in our daily coexistence.</p><p>The series reflects my own experience over the last yea rs. Im a faithful witness to</p><p>these new realities in which we live and observe that all that appears to be natural</p><p>has often been previously preconceived. The new way of living seems to make us</p><p>closer, connect us, but instead we are more and more disconnected and pushedaway from what is tangible, real and furthermore natural and human. As a</p><p>synonym of artificial life, the Mannequin series attempts to revive and make us</p><p>remember the irony of these moments, which have become part of our everyday</p><p>life. The connecting thread in the series are spaces that look like if they were</p><p>staged scenes- with cameras, tripods, lamps, monitors and screens with cables</p><p>unable to connect. The characters in my works are partly extracted from actual</p><p>fauna and in part from my imagination. Like actors or presenters, they illustrate,</p><p>narrate and describe the Mannequin story. By using humor I intend to deliver a</p><p>subliminal message to be read through the visual metaphors."</p><p>About the Artist </p><p>Pablo Caviedes (b. 1971 Cotacachi, Ecuador) studied at the Colegio de Artes</p><p>Plasticas Daniel Reyes in San Antonio De Ibarra, Ecuador where he won numerous</p><p>prizes in local and national competitions. In 1994, Caviedes won the Paris Prize</p><p>sponsored by the Alliance Franaise allowing him to study art at the prestigious</p><p>Ecole National Suprieur des Beaux Arts in Paris, France. Only four years later, in</p><p>1998, Caviedes was one of two artists under age 40 chosen by an International</p><p>Jury for the grand exhibition Latin America and the Caribbean: a new Generation of </p><p> Artists ( Identits: Artistes dAmrique latine et des Carabes 1999 ).
