BOOM AND MODEL: Rolando Peña
By Pietro Daprano (Curator)
Under this vision Rolando Peña experiments paths to build a unique narrative sequence. Thus, using the oil-barrel image (whose iconography is fundamental in the framework of his aesthetic researches), the image acts as a unit able to expand through fraction, to simulate through a horizon line, a representation inspired in the theory of cosmic inflation developed by Alan Guth (New Brunswick, USA 1947), Andréi Linde (Moscow, Russia, 1948), Paul Steinhardt (Washington, D.C. USA 1952) and Andreas Albrecht (Ithaca, USA, 1957).
Rolando Peña: Big Bang
By Katherine Chacón (Art Critic, Former Museum Director)
Big Bang is comprised of a video and seventeen digital prints that follow the sequence of the astral “great explosion” where the barrel takes the place of the space-time zone known in physics as the “singularity” whose expansion allowed the formation of the universe. The path of that explosion is also the trail of the disintegration/creation of the barrel whose fragments seem to be launched to the spectator.
