The Contemporary Art Center of Málaga is presenting Method of Discourse, an exhibition by Fernando Sánchez Castillo comprising constructivist paintings and sculptures specially created for the Centre’s Space 2 and made with the help of robots normally used to deactivate explosives. The artist offers a reflection on how power can be transformed by art with the aim of modifying its pre-established social and political and using a socially committed viewpoint that focuses on historical and political events. The reflection on historical memory that always underlies Sánchez Castillo’s work has evolved in his most recent creations towards an ironic wit and acerbic sense of humour. This is the first time that robots belonging to the Spanish Guardia Civil have been used for the purposes of artistic creation, with the collaboration of the Bomb Disposal Squad and the curatorial direction of the CAC Málaga, which have worked together on the production of the exhibition.
