Glauber Ballestero (Cuba, 1977) is an artist who graduated from the University of the Arts in Cuba. His work has been exhibited in various Cuban galleries and in numerous countries, both personal and group exhibitions, and as part of international cultural events and biennials. He has always had the concern of exploring social constructions on certain political, historical, and human processes, based on unquestionable truths.
Glauber constructs a fictional reality around racial and cultural discourses. The color white is used as an aesthetic and conceptual resource, based on its condition of container and synthesis of all colors. The pieces, similar to a prosthetic body, operate artificially as in performance. It uses multiple references that come from cinema, literature, science, and the occult, creating a hybrid discourse that is consolidated through the visual.
