Cuban-born artist Geandy Pavón has taken his art-protest “Némesis” to Madrid. The performance consists of digitally projecting onto the façade of buildings the image of Cuban political prisoner Orlando Zapata Tamayo, who recently succumbed to a hunger strike.

In Greek mythology, “Némesis” represents divine justice─a persecutory memory. With this creation, Pavón “imposes the face of the victim upon the assassin, using light as an analogy of truth, reason, and justice.”

The performance has been made in New York, Washinton, and Barcelona before. At this time, Pavón dedicated the event "To the memory of Olga Guillot, and all the Cubans who died in the hope of seeing a free Cuba".
