Aníbal López

Guatemala

The economy as a way of understanding the political, psychological and power dynamics in a society is a central notion in Aníbal López’s artistic production. The economic system is laid bare to expose its excesses and inequalities and how these affect the ethical and moral decisions of the often marginal actors of a social group. His projects, from disconcerting angles, seek to unnerve the viewer and the art system, placing them in trouble spots and making them accomplices in unlawful acts.
