Yoan Capote: moving the viewer from passive observation to intellectual reaction


Yoan Capote is an artist whose work spans many different mediums; sculpture, painting, installation, photography and video. He often uses mundane objects, representations or images that incite a political or psychological reference. These are recognized by viewers from all kinds of backgrounds and experiences, not just those familiar with Cuban society. These “mundane objects” are perceived by Capote as extensions of our body. A tool for extending the landscape of symbols that we come across. His work tries to accentuate the meaning or the poetry these objects contain. The human body is an important reference point in his work, something that Yoan Capote sees as full of symbols and expressions. It can be a vessel or a catalyst for universal ideas and experiences. The human psyche and the psychology that surrounds us are a source of inspiration that he taps into, claiming that its helpful in rendering his work more expansive towards an essential or universal analysis. It’s through this that Capote’s work, although deeply connected with the Cuban experience, manages to profoundly affect people from all kinds of circumstances.
