‘exile’ by josé ángel vincench
‘exile’ is an art installation composed of five mobile homes, each taking on the form of one of the letters used to spell out the word.
conceived by cuban artist josé ángel vincench, the large-scale work is pretty self-explanatory. the empty trailers stand uninhabited and
refer to individuals who are living outside of their own country for a particular reason; not necessarily only because of a political situation,
but also personal, often existing in a state isolation.
‘exile’ is part of vincench’s series ‘las casas bonitas tienen familia’ currently on show at the 11th havana biennale in cuba
which runs until june 11th, 2012.
the art work is composed of five individual trailers, each one standing as a letter spelling out the world ‘exile’
