"Dynasty, gaps of a continuos"

Power is the name given to a complex and strategic relationship in a particular society. Power means relationships; a more or less organized, hierarchical and coordinated network, carefully displayed on a particular social structure.

– Microphisics of Power. Michel Foucault. 1979

Dynasty, gaps of a continuous is a proposal by Jessica Salinas with an unusual topic in the scope of art, made up through an installation display complemented by multiple elements, structuring a whole discourse according to its meaning.

Using images of portraits in small format paintings profiling specific social key characters, and projecting videos and documents that establish positions of corporate and institutional relationships, Jessica displays models of social reference for established power networks whose engagement strategies can be recognize, as well as the economic and cultural fields where such things happens.
