About the Exhibition

Pequod Co. presents We are sorry to notify you that due to the end of the world your package has been delayed, by Andrew Roberts (Tijuana, 1995), from November 21, 2020. A provocative show that rethinks the figure of the undead.

The exhibition investigates the transit of what we understand as rotten meat through two materials: skin and silicon. A tattoo can be a codex to invoke dismembered memories while a computer’s processor is the portal to reanimate voices confined to the liminal factory of the beyond. What contemporary fears and anxieties about the undead do we harbor in our imagination? The artist responds with the proper make-up of loins that are too creepy for Netflix.

WE REGRET TO NOTIFY YOU THAT

Your tongue can no longer help you be something else
You can’t solve the enigma of your vitality

You can't reach the plain of immanent transactions
No assembly of elements will give you strength.

DUE TO THE END OF THE WORLD

Love no longer begins in the stomach

Your abdomen no longer houses a digestive system
You don’t need to harmonize your humors

There is nothing to sustain the fantasy of your singularity.

YOUR PACKAGE HAS BEEN DELAYED

Your organs have slowed down

Your time is finally dismembered
Gratification does without meat

This is the failure of the outside

Your very recording replaces it

Only the non-human horde advances life.

Bernardo Núñez Magdaleno
