Despacio Bestias is a sentimental travel into emotional landscapes, where the memory is being turned into objects – tables of wooden pictures. Thoughts that are no longer accessible become visible in the selected set of situations captured in photography. They are suspended in time. Caught in moment. Still. “Despacio Bestias (Slow Down you Beasts) is also a disturbing graffiti quote that stroked my curiosity. It is a part of the manifesto wrote down on a traffic sign by Juan, “an invisible artist from Avellaneda Park, Buenos Aires. Fanatic Peronist and a collector of garbage and forgotten animals”.
Over all we all are pleasant beasts worshipping the time.
Juan is an invisible Artist from Avellaneda Park, Buenos Aires. Fanatic Peronist and a collector of garbage and forgotten animals. His house is a manifesto of his thoughts. He is the true craftsmen with a passion for creating unusual objects. He is also the public enemy because of his political beliefs. Sometimes the neighbors destroy his posters to provoke him, but he is always ready for new manifesto written on the sidewalk or on the walls of his house. Peronist flags flutter high in the corner of this neighborhood. Always surrounded by vulnerable animals, who follow him as Snow White of the Third World.
