Review of Pedro Friedeberg, Mandril y Alefato, FIFTY24MX Gallery, Mexico

It’s hard to make sense out of Pedro Friedeberg’s work, perhaps because a reasonable explanation for his whacky perspective is nearly impossible to come across: “I get up at the crack of noon and, after watering my piranhas, I breakfast off things Corinthian. Later in the day I partake in an Ionic lunch followed by a Doric nap.” Friedeberg is the last remaining member of the original Surrealist Movement founded by André Breton, his signature style of architecture-inspired compositions have become an obligated reference for this type of aesthetic, both in Latin America and in the rest of the world.
