Atravesar una línea: Cuatro proyectos

Sandra Nakamura, Ana Teresa Barboza, Patricia Camet, Natalia Revilla

Moving from one place to another involves undertaking the possibility of relating to what might be dissimilar. It is to cross the line that separates what one considers his own in the direction of the unknown or what is not ours; it is about changing after the contact with another reality and adopting another form of subjectivation.

Following on with his personal investigations, four projects have been developed independently. The exhibition finds as a common point the forms of representation and conceptualization of the sense of crossing, which involves not only the explicit meaning of crossing, but also: displacement, transposition of the path, overcoming and transformation.

Sandra Nakamura. Que lindos son tus ojos. An electro-acoustic installation inspired by the emergence of huayno with harp as a music genre, strictly due to the massive migration of the last decades, and its influence in the popular culture of the city.

The installation seeks to actively link the viewer, generating a relationship between the experience of the tour, the interaction and the possibility of sound. Thus, it proposes from the destructuring of arpeggios in harp that compose the stanza of the song “Qué lindos son tus ojos”, a form of perception that is not necessary for the explicit recognition of the melody, but for the sound as an intelligible experience active, suspended in space and linked to our own movement and rhythm.

Ana Teresa Barboza. Inmersión. Bixa Orellana and Baccharis Genistelloides are the names of two own plants of America, both with coloring properties in their pigmentation. From there, an analogy is created between embroidery and nature, exploring the formal possibilities of landscape representation, weaving and transformation, opposing it to the void as a metaphor of a natural and organic order in the process of representing an image.

Patricia Camet. Random (800 ° to 1167 ° C). At present, mass consumption of mass-produced products has evidently become part of the collective imagination. From the reading of the elements consumed, one can enter into a form of personal subjectivity, articulated from the set of references to which they appeal. In this project, Camet appropriates the remains usually discarded, as a trace of the absence of the element consumed, interacting with the poetics of an inventory that demands a second look from aesthetics: color, contour and shape to allude to various imaginaries that They cross each other and appear in a synthesized and elemental way in space.

Natalia Revilla. Tener una voz nítida. The articulation of language and its expression through speech has, in addition to its meaning, an almost abstract phonetic form, open to a broad interpretation. Revilla, makes a selection of three Machiguengas words that refer to sound, to think from there on the possibility of relating translation and meaning; The sensitive side of the sound image as a metaphor that explores the transitions of that which has no seemingly perceptible physical form.
