Don Quixote of La Mancha

Don Quixote of La Mancha,
Unfinished Deconstructions

 

“...but each (text) divides again… grafted and contaminated by all the others, and you will never be finished”

Jacques Derrida, The Truth in Painting

 

Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes’  visionary archetypal protagonist of the first modern novel will pick up his lance and shield - of sorts - to embark, in the company of his down-to-earth, pragmatic side-kick, Sancho, in the pursuit of the wicked.  He will then, in an “impossible dream”, strive to right the wrongs of our world. In this series of mixed-media images, Rodrigo Palacios dreams a contaminated vision of Don Quixote’s world.
