Carmela, por Ana Avendaño en LCC (London College of Communication) MA Show

LCC MA Show, posted by Bridget on 01 December 2011
Ana Avendaño is from Chile and has used her voyage from South America to Europe as the basis for her installation. Using the personae of Carmela, a folklore peasant girl, Ana has created a series of tourist paraphernalia, mugs, cushions, snow dome paper weights etc with her own image as the figure of Carmela. It is brilliantly kitsch and funny. She also used famous paintings such as Manet's "Dejeuner sur l'herbe" on plates, but this is less successful as it takes away from her own cultural history and doesn't sit well with the other pieces.
