Residency in the Cité Internationale des Arts
08.06.2021 - 10.12.2021
I would like to thank the invitation collaboration of the Cité Internationale des Arts and the Mondriaan Fonds to make possible my research 'Tarzan in Paris'. The French Colonial cinema has influenced the Moroccan Director Mohamend Osfour (1927-2005), who made movies with Moroccan actors based on westernized characters such as Tarzan, Robin Hood or Otelo. Characters were in some way quickly accepted as mirrors of the migratory process in the collective imagination of the Bidonvilles (shantytowns). I would like to use the character 'Tarzan' as my alter ego or impersonator to explore, investigate, intervene and film in Paris. This character is going to move around the city between two architectural areas of Paris: the archives of archaeological museums and the Grand Ensembles.

Huaquero de Museos
20.02.2019 - 02.06.2019
The exhibition "Huaquero de museos" (Museum ́s tomb raider) invites an active and deconstructing role in the experience of the museum visitor. From this approach of the artist, the condition of huaquero would entail an involuntary hero character: a liberator of spirits and relational concepts of the objects trapped in the authoritative narrative of the museum. His action invites us to rethink what is supposedly known from other perspectives, such as the projection of flat shadows, images and abstract presences, such as the Rorschach Test. In this way, the narrative chosen from this fiction seeks to check the gaze and the conventional consensus on the traditional museum. Thus Marco Pando proposes post-colonial research in visual arts, to the extent that it criticizes the preponderant narrative model in museums.
The selected pieces of art in this exhibition function as a channel to conceived the decolonization of territories and identities. This art- sections propose other forms of thought that allow the audience to imagine new social realities, new ways of understanding the subjectivity of the universe and an exploration of the territory and the perception of the "self".

LOS ESPÍRITUS RELOCALIZADOS [RELOCALIZED SPIRITS]
26.09.2018 - 03.11.2018
HACHE is pleased to present LOS ESPÍRITUS RELOCALIZADOS [RELOCALIZED SPIRITS], a curatorial project by Sebastián Vidal Mackinson. The works by Santiago Contreras Soux (Bolivia), Juan Duque (Colombia), Patricio Gil Flood (Argentina), and Marco Pando (Peru) in the exhibition Los espíritus… put forth different visions of the topos of journey, territory, and leisure in the work of South American artists. The show lays out a relationship between history, landscape, vision, and gender while examining the plausibility of “peripheral” artists effectively tackling that relationship. Los espíritus… exhibits visual artifacts constructed by men that problematize the topics of the journey, the configuration of the landscape, and the notion of history as totalizing discourse, in which humor is a major factor.
