[Creative destruction] is a process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionises the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.

Joseph Schumpeter, Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy (1942)

For artist Adrian Melis and many others living in Cuba in the early 1990s reality was defined by the long shadow cast by Fidel Castros glorious revolution and the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Shaped by this paradoxical state of existence, Adrian Meliss practice can be described as a series of inconspicuous interventions, often poetic and surreal, which address systemic political and corporate corruption, political apathy, labour markets, bureaucratic inefficiency, and their effects on the social fabric. He has developed an extensive body of work articulated through videos, photography and installations.

Adrian Meliss upcoming solo exhibition at Pori Art Museum, titled 2768. 23,53. 8. 1958. 57%. 1000, consists of a selection of older and recent works and new commissions. Adrian Meliss work and methodology are markedly influenced by Fidel Castros schemes for economic growth. Intricate and often absurd, these experiments orchestrated by a figure that could only be described as a mad scientist failed disastrously, each time further dismantling the countrys vulnerable economy. Each work in the exhibition can be perceived as fluctuating between states of production and destruction, and as a whole, 2768. 23,53. 8. 1958. 57%. 1000 reveals potential in the creative destruction of grand ideas.

Adrian Melis (b.1985) graduated from the University of Arts (ISA), Havana, in 2010. Prior to that, he had participated in the Ctedra Arte de Conducta directed by Tania Bruguera (2006-2008). He was also resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam (2014-2015). He is currently based in Barcelona and is represented by ADN Galeria.
