Pepe Espaliu

Este video que recoge una gran parte de la obra de Pepe Espaliu, se lo dedico a él (gran amigo) y a todos aquellos que luchan por sobrellevar i enfrentarse a la enfermedad del SIDA. Desde 1986 a 1993 Espaliu desarrolló una obra fuerte, emotiva, desenmascarando la hipocresía de esta sociedad que mira a los que son diferentes desde la barrera. Su obra nos hace reflexionar, desde la enfermedad pudo expresar sentimientos muy profundos que desconectan con la banalidad mundana para llegar a una verdad más auténtica y espiritual.
Montse Cosidó

Pepe Espaliu
Espaliú moved between painting, drawing, sculpture and performance art. As he declared, his earlier works aimed to protect him against the world; they were, hesaid, "and alibi". His later works included tortoise shells and other objects that function as a reference both to his vulnerability as an AIDS patient and the shell that artists construct with their work. Direct homoerotic imagery did not find a place in his artistic production until his very last works. But before that, his experiences as a homosexual and HIV-positive person determined the meaning of many of his works.
