is a collective project, created in March 2015 by two artists:
Sabrina Fernández Casas (1988) and Patricio Gil Flood (1977).
MACACO PRESS explores the relation between self-publishing and performance.
MACACO PRESS plays with notions of identity and authorship based on strategies of visibility and invisibility, legal and illegal productions.
We conceive this project as a material which is not something fixed but which is constant evolution and changing, difficult to define as only one thing:
sometimes MACACO are illegal workers
sometimes MACACO are foreigners
sometimes MACACO are ephemeral performances
sometimes MACACO is printed matter
sometimes MACACO is a dog dealer
sometimes MACACO is another artist
sometimes MACACO are flags
sometimes MACACO is exchange
sometimes MACACO is infiltration
sometimes MACACO is a selfie
sometimes MACACO is multiple
sometimes MACACO is an association
sometimes MACACO are teachers
sometimes MACACO is a political statement
sometimes MACACO is a deviant practice
sometimes MACACO is a joke
sometimes MACACO is art
sometimes MACACO is something else…
Sometimes MACACO is a vindication of a multiple and mobile way to create, in a social context limited by economic forces.
