Danis Napoles Cisneros
Robot (2010)

f.1983 Palma Soriano, Cuba

Danis Napoles Cisneros artistic practice emerges from Cuban street culture through the music and dance of Reggeaton. In his works he relates to how the individual connects to it’s society and questions how a modern lifestyle is adapted by the Cuban society.

The work Robot can be seen as an allegory of how the old Cuban system is slowly changing by cultural and technical influences from the outside, and how present values slowly disappears. The piece mirrors another world and memories from human history; in search of modernity we find the past.
