Fortune (From the Series “Covers”)
Fábio Colaço (Portugal)
Installation (adhesive vinyl on plexiglass)
168 x 118 cm

The work “Fortune” (2019) consists of a reproduction of the cover of the American magazine Fortune. However, in addition to its size, instead of what is normally presented on the cover, in this version the artist uses a reflective black material that mirrors whoever stands in front of the work.

Whether through the reflections of light or the multiple images that fill this empty space, the representation is now multifaceted, as if any individual could be the image of power on the cover of a multinational business magazine.

Everyone can be and have that place, as in capitalism it is made to believe that everyone can be rich, an illusion of equality but one that survives only on inequality.
