Instalation

Readymade is a term that Marcel Duchamp coined around 1915 to describe what he described as found art. His first work of this type was Bicycle Wheel (1913), but it is with Fountain (1917) that the concept came into vogue, revolutionizing the art world. Objects that were not normally considered artistic were modified to the will of the artist and considered art: Fountain is originally a porcelain urinal. A century later, with his installations, Diego Díaz interferes in this discussion and stipulates that works of art, in the case of oil-painted canvases, meet the needs of everyday life, such as serving as a curtain; that is to say, it proposes a path diametrically contrary to that of Duchamp. These curtains are, simultaneously, sculptures that intervene in the space and resize it. Thus, the viewer’s focus turns into a double gaze: that on art and that on everyday life..
