Spiritual series

Spiritual is an exhibition project made up of three-dimensional works around the Cuban faith and religiosity. Unlike the classic idealism with which deities are usually represented, I intend to humanize these cult figures, to put them to coexist on an earthly plane with those they protect. I am also interested in talking about history, roots, miracles and short stories that make up the memory of Cubans.

Metrópolis series

Metrópolis, is a reasoned and metaphorical picture of Havana. In the series, the imaginative flight of art is fused with the objectivity of design (…) Animals, as protagonists of these stories, are part of an analogy with the human essence (…) Means of transportation function as a metonym for the exhibition’s structuring topic: transportation, the trigger for innumerable social dynamics and the latent concern of every average Cuban, not to mention the overtones of migration, in which insularity is transformed at times into a cursed circumstance. Yorlán uses the means of transport as receptacles of images or text balloons in which to enclose their stories. With this compositional solution, he resolves to group the chaotic urbanization into a single figure that is legibly separated from the neutral background (…)
Dayma Crespo Zaporta, Havana, September 2018. Excerpts from the words to the catalog.
