Today's review comes from FLORA ars + natura, Bogotá, Colombia. José Alejandro Restrepo’s ‘Musa paradisíaca’ (Paradisiacal Muse) draws upon an actualization by Gabriela García Márquez, who linguistically conflates rotting human and plantain flesh. . An adapted restaging of the artist’s eponymous landmark work, first presented at Bogotá’s Museo de Arte Moderno in 1996, saturates the three-floor exhibition space with the acrid smell of overripe fruit.
