Oro, papel, diamante Exhibition
Oro, papel, diamante is an exhibition by Teresa Estapé curated by Zaida Trallero. The artist takes these three elements with which valuable goods are made to reflect on the price-value dichotomy. Through different actions, she hides their properties in order to deny their value and make their appearance invisible, thus highlighting the logic of capitalism.
Gold, paper and diamonds have the particularity of being revalued natural elements whose economic value fluctuates. The use of gold and diamonds in jewelry has taken on a dimension that has surpassed the symbolic and the ancestral to become an object of desire, which is the same, of consumption, mainly due to the “democracy of consumption” as Yannis Stavrakakis points out. However, paper is not a natural element, but a transformed product, which is of no interest in jewelry but has acquired a surplus value by turning it into currency or security paper.
