Fernando Botero: The Circus Series / Galerie Gmurzynska, Zurich / Interview

October 13, 2008

Galerie Gmurzynska in Zurich, Switzerland currently presents new works by Colombian artist Fernando Botero. The exhibition is Fernando Botero’s first solo show at the gallery. On display are drawings and paintings from Botero’s Circus series, three bronze sculptures of various themes, and as a counterpoint works from Botero’s Abu Ghraib series.
VernissageTV met with Fernando Botera the day after the opening of his exhibition at the gallery. In this video, Fernando Botero talks about his fascination for the circus as subject-matter, and his motivation to thematize the terror executed by American soliders in Abu Ghraib.
