I am pleased to share the following endorsement posted on my facebook wall by Luis Duno-Gottberg:
“Congratulations for an excellent show Gerardo.
I would describe the work as brilliant. By destabilizing or challenging the spectator's perception (and expectation) of what the language of violence is and where the "locus" of violence resides, you bring him/her into a deeper understanding of the problem. You force us to see violence in expressions or forms that are traditionally associated with the realm of children, toys, playfulness --this is tremendous and probably, necessary.”
