Sobre Afterword de Oscar Santillán

“The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche owned only one typewriter, a Malling-Hansen model, in his whole life. Most of his philosophical texts he wrote by hand. He did not succeed to write with this typewriter. He typed more than 70 letters with the machine, but had to correct en finalize them with pencil. Fascinated by the frustrations of one of the worlds greatest philosophers Oscar Santillan made a new work, Afterword.

In his work Oscar Santillan insinuates on the exchange between fact and fiction. Unexpected events occur, the rhythm of drums is synchronized with the sweat of a person, the unrealized wish of  a dead person is fulfilled, or the tip of a mountain is stolen. Santillan received his master’s Sculpture at Virginia Commonwealth University. Currently he is the resident of the Delfina Foundation in London and has recently completed his research at the Jan van Eyck Academie. His work has been shown in the Havana Biennial , Havana, Copperfield Gallery, London, Old -Rekem Castle, Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht , Fundacion ODEON , Bogota.”
