The South Florida Latin American Photography Forum (SoFLaFoto) is proud to sponsor the online exhibition "Cuando el recuerdo se convierte en polvo" (When the memory turns to dust) by Cuban visual artist Ricardo Miguel Hernández Acevedo curated by art critic and curator Yenny Hernández Valdés.

El South Florida Latin American Photography Forum (SoFLaFoto) se enorgullece en anunciar su auspicio y colaboración con la exhibición online "Cuando el recuerdo se convierte en polvo" del artista visual cubano Ricardo Miguel Hernández Acevedo, curada por la crítica de arte y curadora Yenny Hernández Valdés.

Desde el lenguaje de la fotografía, Ricardo Miguel deviene en autócrata que escoge a su antojo fragmentos desechables de realidades casi olvidadas, para evidenciar que esta es elástica, que se re-construye más allá de los límites literales. Las obras son testamentos resucitados de una sociedad –la cubana principalmente– que se regodea en la nostalgia, en paradigmas narratológicos sociales desgastados, en la entelequia de un presente incierto y un futuro borroso. Estos fotocollages, en su performática fabricación técnica y conceptual, devienen en metáfora polisémica de una ontología que parte de lo personal para abarcar la colectividad de la memoria social.
