Featured BIENNIAL JOURNAL: Warriors (+ PHOTOS)

Artist Miriannys Montes de Oca has placed a real army at a central park in Havana. But those warriors do not carry weapons.… 

From Mariana Grajales Park (23rd Street, between C and D streets, Vedado) a real army surprises passers-by: they are the warriors of visual artist Miriannys Montes de Oca, downcast figures that evoke an act of repentance, rather than a battle.  

The sculptural group, one of the proposals of the 13th Havana Biennial, is made up of thirty pieces facing the street.  

They’re warriors, but do not carry weapons: ultimately, the installation seems a metaphor of peace: these “creatures” only hold mysterious colored spheres, as if they were offerings.
