Artist's biography

Lázaro Saavedra was born in Havana, Cuba in 1964. A graduate of the National Art School, he is internationally known as one of Cuba’s foremost visual artists. His works have been shown all around the world.

Project statement

This work was shown as part of the 2008 Montreal Museum of Fine Arts exhibit “¡Cuba! Art and History from 1868 to Today” and has been offered as a donation to the institution. The artist’s eyes, multiplied in four screens, are spying on each other in a video that reminds the viewer of the surveillance system implemented by the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution in Cuba. Many of Saavedra’s works comment on the Orwellian aspects of the Cuban regime.
