José Luis Landet’s work involves a wide range of operating and assimilating cultural processes crossed by social, political and ideological actions, through which he explores cultural remnants.

In Doma, Landet presents the work of South American artist Carlos Gómez (1945-2014), from his epistolary communication with poet Zé Braulio, until his exile to Mexico in 1977. The restoration and presentation of Gomez’s work represents an ideal starting point for Landet’s objectives: to recover, document and innovate.

 

Doma (Tame):

1 The process of domestication of a wild animal through the repetition of exercises.

2 To deprive a passion or conduct.
