preteen presents escándalo, a new installation piece by puerto rico-based artist Radames “Juni” Figueroa. 2010

RADAMES “JUNI” FIGUEROA’S WORK SERVES AS AN EXPLORATION OF TWO MAIN THEMES: SEX AND NATURAL REALITY. IN HIS GREEN INSTALLATIONS AND ASSEMBLAGES HE CONSTRUCTS A CRITIQUE OF CURRENT TROPICAL UTOPIAS WHILE CREATING A SITUATION IN WHICH PLANTS BECOME A LIVING AND GROWING WORK OF ART. HE INTEGRATES THE AESTHETICS OF THE HOME GARDEN AND THAT OF SPORTS AND RECREATION. IN HIS DRAWINGS AND PAINTINGS, HE DEPICTS A CHILDISH YET SEXUALLY CHARGED REALITY, AGAIN BORROWING ON THE VISUAL OUTCOMES OF TROPICALIA. IN "ESCÁNDALO", FIGUEROA WILL RECREATE THE AMBIANCE OF A PUERTO RICAN BAR, REPRODUCING THE BAR’S CHARACTERISTIC WORKS OF ART AND INTERIOR DECORATION. HE WILL CREATE A SITUATION WHERE HIS TROPICAL READYMADES, THE DISTINCTIVE BAR AMBIANCE AND THE CONSTANT FLOW OF ALCOHOL TURN THE SPACE INTO A “PLACE WITHOUT LIMITS”.
