Yaima Carrazana Ciudad

Fascinated by the elegance of movement displayed by a horse on a red carpet, the young Cuban artist Yaima Carrazana Ciudad (1981) in her work La Hybris de un Rey (2004) refers to the arrogance of Agamemnon, the King of Crete. In Greek antiquity, hubris constitutes the most heinous transgression committed by an individual attempting to challenge destiny and the gods. Here Carrazana Ciudad thus provides an ironic and metaphoric commentary on the political situation of her country of origin.
