Diego Guti

Who defines well-being, the canons of happiness and what is considered a priority? The subjectivity of the human being enters the conflict before any totalitarian attempt to construct exact definitions against what, in an unequal society, can be considered as generality.

The pictorial series CONSIMISMO, was born as an exercise of reflection in front of what, from the individual position, each one can consider as normality or priority. The series invites us to reread this individuality, contrasting it from its two extremes, displaying the social gap and making evident the differences and inequalities that from the hegemonies of power we have learned to naturalize as “things of life”.

The ethnographic work, the interviews and the field diary give shape and structure to the aesthetic language with which the protagonists of the paintings are represented in the CONSIMISMO series, who, through their orality and testimony, helped to solidify each proposal.

Criticism, despite being evident, does not constitute a fundamental part in CONSIMISM, because beyond demonizing the dynamics of consumption, the series tries to generate a roar in the collective conscience, an awakening of the postcolonialist lethargy naturalized during centuries of indifference, its The objective is not to generate a single look, nor does it seek to criticize any segment of society, on the contrary, in this reflection there is room for subjective readings and dialogues that surely are not comfortable for everyone.
