Alejandro de la Guerra is Nicaraguan artist who expresses:
My artistic work is focused in the aestethetics of power; specially in the idea of the monumental approaches of History and the political power. I am interested in deciphering the symbols of power and its influence in our conception of art: the liminal frontier where art becomes functional/utilitarian as a form of a political discursive.
Moreover, as I am interested in the reconstruction of the Historical Memory as a method of individual awareness based on experience rather than theory, I have developed passion in the demystification of power that operates in the collective thought through clothes, monuments, podiums, rituals, symbols and through the different cultural expressions of “officialism”.
In that sense, my art work is based on critical thinking: an interdisciplinary game between historical memory and myth, between imagination and hallucination, fiction and reality; moving on the sly among the fragile border that separates archeology and socio-politics from art."
