Andres Cuervo Artist Bio:

There was, however another side to his work. Cuervo`s intention was to combine art and life. Visual imagery always involved both, as far as he was concerned. Bogota, Colombia 1981. "...By contrast to such essentially solipsistic pursuits, many younger artists of the 1990s generation reflected new conditions of cultural and global political-cross reference. The review of modernist themes such as an art that merges art and life soon bound with these new artists. The Colombian artist Andres Cuervo has been a central influence on recent art tendencies. In 2007 he produced a work entitled 09042007 [31.2]. Responding to a concern with the institution's attached value and the elusive hidden muted cultural dinamics inside museums. Cuervo's gesture turned into a turmoil of critique deconstruction revolving around an institution, that is continuously pointing out what is art from what its not. Much like Duchamp readymade, Cuervo "˜elevated' an ordinary object, a figurative drawing into the status of art. He may well be reformulating past attitudes here. A sardonic dismantling of the museum and it's power to imposing spurious value judgements. Cuervo drawing hijacked an authoritarian voice, the fact the actual drawing was hanged slightly crooked to the right might had to do with an actual mock of the modes of curatorial sense of taste blithely revisited by "˜Conceptualism'. In a sense, Cuervo was updating the moral and political conundrums of artists as Robert Rauschenberg. His concerns were far removed from plain vandalism." www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_8_W11qDyM http://www.facebook.com/pages/Andrs-Cuervo/147977441924489?ref=hl
