With a new edition of PENACHO VS PENACHO the poster takes us to the year 2078 — 200 years after the Penacho was found by the naturist Ferdinand von Hochstetter in Tyrol (Austria) — when a group of luchadorxs not only managed to secretly and safely swap the “original” Penacho with its copy but also saved the birds from extinction which provided the precious Penacho’s feathers: continga, quetzal, roseate spoonbill, squirrel cuckoo.
PENACHO VS PENACHO Edition 2078 was part of PROPERTIES OF A PRESENCE, curated by Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll, at KUBATUR DES KABINETTS – Der Kunstsalon im Fluc (Oct 13- Nov 10, 2021) in Vienna.
