Periphery of the body: Visual narratives of Mario Patiño
By Felipe Mújica
How to speak of the periphery? Peripheral is all that gets out of control, that corrupts a system, that lives on the edge, that adheres to the margins, that puts in doubt, that causes questioning, that rebels, that revolutionizes, that rises, that organizes insurrections; it’s everything that doesn’t fit, that resists, that refuses to play the game by the rules; it’s the possibility of change, of something new.

Peripheral is the abject, what causes a deep fear of the hegemonic; it’s the outrage, the putsch, the outbreak, what’s wanted hidden, of what’s not spoken, the forbidden, the taboo, the obnoxious, the stigma, the demoniac, the stain that never comes off. Peripheral is the work of art of Mario Patiño.
“Periphery of the body, ” individual painterly and photographic exhibition by Mario Patiño, curated by Lothar Muller, text and translation by Felipe Osornio “Lechedevirgen Trimegisto” and Sorshamn Lara.
