Glow in the Dark Installation
Through his multimedia work, Requena tells stories of situations related to racial discrimination, post gender thinking, human relationships and our behavior in the natural habitat. He is currently working with textiles, powder, video & sound.
The Glow in the Dark word installations are made of powder. They are fragile, ephemeral and are made on the floor. These statements are taken from books, movies and the artists’ personal conversations. Requena’s recent installations are based on my readings of the French poet, writer, thinker, political activist and academic from Martinique, Edouard Glissant’s treatise on the Tout-Monde (Whole World).
The essence of this installation is the absence of light and requires darkness.
