Sol Calero: El Autobús
Sol Calero (born in Caracas, Venezuela, 1982) employs a wide range of media in her practice such as found objects, fabric, painting and drawing.
Tate Liverpool presents a new, large-scale commission by Calero exploring themes of representation, identity, displacement and marginalisation, all informed by her own perspective as a migrant: “El Autobús 2019”.
The bus-like structure, evoking the buses used in Latin America, is inspired by a recent journey through South America. Visitors are invited to travel through the Wolfson Gallery, exploring the floor-to-ceiling mural which overwhelms the space with a landscape of patterns, panoramic views, floral motifs and architectural elements and to listen out for bus announcements, which promise to get to destinations that can never be reached.
