“The Political Seducer’s Diary:” Daniel Caballero

December 9 – 15, 2017

Daniel Caballero is a multidisciplinary artist from Los Angeles whose practice examines interpersonal relations and cultural doctrines. Caballero forensically investigates these structures to implement transparency and expand the scope of intimacy. Through performance, Caballero engages the body and its absence as a site of confrontation and provocation, where access is privileged and acute vulnerability is facilitated. Cross generational inheritances of ritual, ceremony, and offerings are restructured from the oppressive residue of  postcolonial Mexico and Philippines. Caballero’s excavation of image and text formulate a decryption, making the viewer not only complicit, but non-singular, and non-passive.
