About the artwork
This exclusive edition has been commissioned by Studio Voltaire as part of their Frieze Cork Street 2021 presentation. The edition, derives from the artist’s 2018 painting of the same name. Calero’s distinct visual language draws upon visual clichés and imported ideas that we might associate with Latin America, She uses stereotypically ‘tropical’ imagery such as exotic fruit and salsa dresses, inviting the audience to reconsider notions of creation, privilege and cultural appropriation.
