David Palacios belongs to a generation of artists whose proposals relate to the newest languages. His work deals with the deconstruction of works of art and the multiple fields related to this notion. Palacios also carries out an intertextual analysis of the work as a product and the context that sponsors it, employing institutional connections of all sorts. Using various indicators, comparative charts, percentile analysis and statistical diagrams,
the artist shows the complexity of these relationships. In many cases, he alludes to corrupted associations that transform the work into a mere symbol destined for commercialisation and marketing. Palacios has participated with other artists in various group projects, and has shown his work as installations as well as in traditional formats.
