DEMIAN SCHOPF

Demian Schopf is a visual artist and philosopher. His work is the result of a long philosophical and social research that takes many forms: installation, photography or video.

He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Chile and abroad, including the National Gallery in Auckland, the Spazio Oberdan in Milan and the Cairo International Biennial.

Through this series, the artist uses the neo-baroque costumes of the celebrations of the Altiplano (high plains in northern Chile) in the Andes, to show the duality between Spanish indigenous Catholicism and its aestheticism on one side and the manufacturing mark "Made in Asia" of these same costumes. By placing these subjects in a nature on demand of globalization, Demian Schopf questions the evolution of our society and the relationship between evolution and tradition.
