Tenia Simbionte harvests exhibition catalogs from museums and transforms them by including its own work of art, taking care of the layout, the font and style, as well as the composition, colors and images. During the exhibition period, Tenia returns its parasite to its original place.
Uses camouflage to become critical with the institution: with the museum, the art market, with artists, with the authority of the work, with context, with the curator, with the viewer, with art itself.
It is appropriationist but never establishes a destructive relationship with the host, it rather engages in an “I win you win” relationship with it, adding creative input at the time of taking advantage of it. http://teniasimbionte.wordpress.com/
