General Song, Rodrigo Valenzuela's second solo exhibition at Upfor, abstracts and adapts images of the barricade. Drawing on his longtime interest in poetic resistance and research in Chile, Ukraine, Venezuela and other countries, the artist focuses on simple physical structures that people build in times of oppression as a means to explore civil disobedience. Valenzuela’s work is often rooted in the contradictory traditions of documentary and fiction, frequently involving narratives around immigration and the working class.
