POSTCOLOMBINO

This serie constructs an intertwined form through the repeated superposition of layers of a rifle, concealing the illusion of a fictive object.These collages, held on a neutral black background, take over the focus of documentary photography of museum or jewel catalogs and transfer the concept of cultural value to the new presentation, which underlines their craftsmanship character.

"The reinterpretation of historical iconic objects, such as a firearm, allows Botero to link the pre-colonial past with the armed conflict of recent decades and the current situation in Colombia.
