The exhibition by Nicolás Robbio was constructed based on three symbols that represent Power: the flag, the iron grating and the coin.

The symbol of sovereign states, clans or societies of people ruled by law or by tradition, the flag appears in the installation Sem Título [2014], represented only by the shadow it reproduces. Its matrix, in this case absent, would give us clues about its provenance. Robbio’s interest, however, is in the symbology of Bandeira.

Los de arriba, los de abajo. Los buenos, los malos, a video created by Robbio in 2011, resorts to images of iron gratings used in houses and buildings to weave a commentary about the impossibility of permanence or the reconciling of opposites.

The accumulation of acquisitive power takes place through money. In Meccano, two coins from different countries, England and Colombia, are related in a balanced way in a system of gears, as though the value they represent could be equivalent.

In Repetição da ordem, Robbio creates a representation about current society, by means of symbols of power that drive it.
