“Non-Star” is the title of Dagoberto Rodríguez´s series of bronze sculptures and watercolors on paper that relates to the insignias and sculptures that were set in public buildings from the former Socialist world. They are associated with symbolic imagery such as the eternal forge or the unknown soldier. A heraldry of power that has been recoated with the skin of a starfish.
