PANDEMIC, 2018
OBDULIO PILOTO

Pandemic presents an apocalyptic vision of humanity afflicted by a global disease outbreak

exhibited during our inaugural opening during Art Basel Miami Beach 2018

A pandemic is an epidemic occurring on a scale that crosses international boundaries, usually affecting people on a worldwide scale.

Mirroring a map of international flight paths, this work charts the physical interconnectedness of human society that places us at great risk for a global pandemic.

The artist lays bare his fear that in our age of tremendous scientific and technological advancement, humanity remains unprepared for such a calamity.

Rendering the world map in a red alert of an impending emergency

Without equity, pandemic battles will fail. Viruses will simply recirculate, and perhaps undergo mutations or changes that render vaccines useless, passing through the unprotected populations of the planet. -Laurie Garrett
Dr. Piloto’s work centers on exploring human identity and its essence in an era of exponential technological advances that redefine what it means to be human.
Artworks depict people, and life in general, as deconstructed mixtures of molecules in a 70-spot ‘molecular portrait’ created using contemporary life-saving technology.
