PRESENTATION on Wednesday, April 19th, 6.30 pm / NF/ NIEVES FERNÁNDEZ

CAMPING presents: ‘OXIMORON’ by Checho Tamayo


Soccer and dance. The popular and the refined. The mystical and the historical. Abstractions that dilute in the folds of a sweaty body in constant transit, in constant search.

Oxímoron is part of a long research in which soccer is understood as a popular dance and as a community performance, in order to pull the encounters and misunderstandings of this popular sport and the world of contemporary art.


CHECHO TAMAYO is a scenic creator, performer, and ex-football player born in Medellin, Colombia (1994). He has been on three consecutive years winner of the INJUVE national call for proposals in the modalities of curatorship of the Sala Amadís (2020-2021), production (2021-2022), and mobility (2021-2022). In 2022 he creates “Moritūrī tē salūtant” with the coproduction of the MeetYou festival, the support of the SURGE festival, and the 35th Certamen Coreográfico de Madrid. In 2023, he received the first prize of the WE:NOW festival with the same work. His works have been exhibited and presented in venues such as C.C. Conde Duque (Madrid), Sala Amadís (Madrid), Teatro Pradillo (Madrid), 45th Salón Nacional de Artists (Bogota), C.C. Monte Hermoso (Vitoria), Pablo Tobón Uribe Theater (Medellin), Teatro Calderón (Valladolid), Teatro La Abadía (Madrid), Sala Baratza (Vitoria).

After playing in teams such as D. I. Medellín (Colombia), F.C. Dallas (United States) and C.C. Dallas (United States) and C.F. Léon (Mexico), he migrates to Castellón de la Plana, Spain, to continue with his sporting career. His subsequent move to Madrid provides him with the context to reflect on his sporting practice and to approach it as an expressive means that his native context allows him. It is then that he began his transition from high-performance sports to performative arts, visual arts, and dance. His work dialogues with the tensions that arise when apparently contradictory spaces are inhabited simultaneously: soccer and dance, the subtle and the exuberant, the refined and the popular, the historical and the mystical, the waking and the dreaming.


OXIMORON is the tenth edition of CAMPING and will take place on the finissage days of Tamara Arroyo’s solo show Un fatal descontento de lugar.

CAMPING is a project by Nerea and Idoia Fernández, directors of NF/NIEVES FERNANDEZ and Blanca Cortés, lawyer specialized in intellectual property.

VARIATION/ Madrid. Raphäel Denis



Raphaël Denis graduated from the Ecole nationale supérieure des Arts décoratifs de Paris (ENSAD), he was born in 1979 in Paris. He livres and works between Paris and Brussels. His works are part of the collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou, of the Musée d’art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme in Paris, of the FRAC Alsace, of the Francès Collection and Laurent Dumas – Emerige collection in Ile de France, of the Frédéric de Goldschmidt collection in Brussels, of the Reiner Speck collection in Düsseldorf, of the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire in Geneva and of the Kunsthaus in Zurich, Switzerland. Raphaël Denis is an artist-researcher who sets historical questioning and the status of the work of art at the center of his work. He is known for his work on the dispossession of Jewish property during the war. By his work, Raphaël Denis’ oeuvre constitutes a commemorative on history of art, and the mechanisms of destruction or of annihilation to which cultural objects as expression of human identities can be subjected. In plastic terms, this reflection emerges from his exploration of materials widely used in the construction of societies – lead, wood, concrete – in tandem with various black binding agents. The artworks presented at NAVE N condense the main elements of “La Loi normale des Erreurs”, a serie begun in 2015, which the artist keeps on developing. This research work was exhibited at the Musée National Picasso and at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, at the Berggruen Museum in Berlin and at the Kunsthaus in Zurich. “La Loi normale des erreurs” centred on artwork plundered from Jewish collectors during the Second World War (black paintings), on destroyed art (“Vernichtet”), on statues or paintings taken by the Nazi administration to French jewish art collectors or influent dealers such as Paul Rosenberg (“Fonds Paul Rosenberg”).
