The recognized Canadian artist Marcel Dzama presents his second exhibition in Galería Helga de Alvear titled A Trickster Made this World. His traditional ink drawings –this time on piano scroll-, paper mache buffoons heads, colourful puppets and his new piece of videoart Une Danse Des Bouffons (2013) construct the exhibition. A Trickster made this world takes its title from the famous book of Lewis Hyde,  who brings to life the playful and disruptive side of human imagination as it is embodied in trickster mythology.
