Statement

In spite of the distances separating the artistic works of Reynier Leyva Novo (Havana, Cuba, 1983) and Diana Fonseca (Havana, Cuba, 1978), we can identify a shared interest for the rewriting of reality, the aesthetic camouflage and the simulation within their work processes. This set of resources emerges in different ways in both artists, however, it ends up incorporating them into a kind of imaginary of the real in which each thing, person or event is always an improbable version of itself. Starting from such a principle, the works of Novo and Fonseca inaugurate their own logic, forcing the spectator to participate in uninterrupted exercises of reinvention and equivocation.
