Životne prostore portorikanskog susjedstva (od Puerto Rica i Philadelpie do Bronxa) Pepón Osorio pretvara u sveta mjesta. Proračunata barokna dekorativnost koja se tretira kao mjesto zločina - kojemu se više ne smije prići. Nikada više.
Pepon Osorio's Badge of Honor
Pepón Osorio is best known for his large-scale art installations that merge conceptual art and community dynamics. He has worked with well over 25 communities across the U.S. and internationally, creating interventions based on real life experiences. For almost two decades he has been presenting work in unconventional places prior to exhibiting in a museum setting, exploring the subjectivity of meaning in art and the multiple readings that these installations achieve depending on their location. Osorio is the recipient of numerous distinctions including the 2008 Legacy Award in the Arts from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. 2001 Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture, the Whitney Biennial, 1993; an Alpert Award in the Arts-Visual Arts, 1999; and a John D. and Catherine T. McArthur Foundation Fellowship. Osorio was featured in the first series of PBS Art21, Artist of the 21st Century documentary. - www.kathmanduarts.org/
