Los Carpinteros: an art collective from Havana

The easiest way to describe the work of the art collective Los Carpinteros is ‘deform to form in order to perform’. Sometimes you have to disassemble your projects and objects into their individual components to see what they’re really made of.

After having established that, it’s way easier to enhance the deformed project/object and to create something new, more advanced. And in this case advanced is defined by Los Carpinteros and how they want their chosen objects to evolve and change.

This group of dedicated lovers of high-quality manufactured products started in 1991 and until today they’ve had many exhibitions all over the globe, wowing people with their conceptual ideas and craftsmanship skills.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
