Encuéntrame entre las flores

Artist: Tahanny Lee Betanourt

All the stages of a flower are always surprising: the button is always the unexpected promise of a smile, the opening of a plenitude that, however announced it may have been, is miraculous, and the decay, although gradual and expected, invariably sudden. Presence and absence are always splendid, extraordinary. Why is it so difficult for us to accept that everything is temporary, that everything will disappear? The message of each flower that is born and wilts is incessantly of the fugitive permanence. The flowers that we see here were from a funeral and collected in a trunk that has been opening every anniversary, to add new flowers, to close it again; When we look into this room delimited to the center of the room, we peer into that same movement in the history perfumed by successive blinks. The drying flowers as a whole have dictated the color palette in the blasting of the paintings, and the graphic imprint of their passage through time in the other monochromatic. To understand the visual, acoustic and olfactory rhythm between absence and presence is that now we come to find ourselves among the flowers, with the half-lost look among the multitude of petals that have left their persistent imprint through the years as a memory that is updated in each opening and closing of the eye, suspended which corresponds to the temporality of the absences, guided by the voice because only the song knows how to speak the flourishing language of those who have left because the voice fades as soon as it moves us, a instrumentation by Tahanny of all the senses of the body to give shape to the statute of death as the common good in which we face, we recognize and learn to love each other.

Dinero Fantasma

Dinero Fantasma

El dinero fantasma es parte de una tradición china en la cual se quema dinero de mentiras para que este se convierta en dinero que puedan utilizar los antepasados en el otro mundo. Esta obra cinemática es una ofrenda a los espíritus de los familiares que han fallecido y una invocación a su sabiduría y conocimiento de la vida después de la muerte, en donde lo virtual puede ser real.

Canon de la tierra fue producido en el transcurso de un año, y es el resultado de la insistente documentación y la combinación de 386 videos originales. Enigmático, la obra es un lenguaje esquizoide, repartido entre escenas vertiginosas que fluyen naturalmente. Es un oráculo ambiguo y racional: parecería que cada corto es la respuesta a una pregunta todavía no formulada. Se presenta una perspectiva atemporal y contemporánea a la vez, una corriente que no se detiene. No tiene definición: nos enseña lo que queremos ver.

Thin Air

Throughout history, the importance of the artwork's physicality has been defied time and time again. The group show "Thin Air", stems from the concept of the invisibility of an artwork, creating emphasis on the idea, the process, and the context behind the piece itself rather than the materiality of it. The artists that participate in the show are: Yóllotl Alvarado, Javier Barrios, Emilio Chapela, Virginia Colwell, Jorge de la Garza, Manuela García, Cristóbal Gracia, Joshua Job, Ulrik López, Anuar Maauad, Federico Martínez Montoya, Chantal Peñalosa, Armando Rosales and Joaquín Segura
