Mabel Poblet (Cienfuegos, 1986), Cuban artist. Graduated from the University of Arts of Cuba.
She is one of the most talented young women in contemporary visual arts. She often appropriates aesthetic codes where beauty is confused with kitsch, in a discourse of striking colors and tiny flowers that hide reality.
Behind this façade, Mabel symbolises sensory experiences, closes her eyes and bows down in front of a mirror. To a large extent her discourse is self-referential and at the same time encompasses the feminine gender. It is taken as an experiment to reveal the plural consciousness, largely of women, who even some persist in seeking the perfect as a social inheritance.
Photography at its starting point. After working it intensely it shows an ideal, dystopian and overwhelming world. If the viewer allows himself to be carried away by first impressions, he will find a striking argument before his eyes. When he stops looking, he will see the wonder transformed into torment. Nothing in this life is perfect and if you find it, it is not real.
The installation is another of his artistic paths. In this context, she advances confidently without leaving aside that reflective discourse that is necessary for the times we live in. Her works have been exhibited in countries such as the United States, Cuba, Spain, Portugal and Ecuador.
Mabel Poblet's phrase: "Undoubtedly, the content of art has repercussions on the social environment, whether from a critical or pleasurable perspective".
