Arche of confuses Memories. Isidro López-Aparicio
Years colecting personally objects from many places conect and built and and arche a bridgue full of human remains... Memories, about the utility of the objects… The pieces produced specifically for this art project have been made from objects collected, for over a year, from public and private institutions warehouse in the city and elsewhere in the world. The basis of this art project is the weaving of a network through the management, collection, relocation, contextualization and reinterpretation of the utility and value of the objects; from our own uncertainty raises the awareness of those reality bits which our system keeps hidden away. López-Aparicio shows this unresolved conflict and generates tools that help us look and sketch and thus move us towards a non-conformist attitude, towards alternative attitudes to the life we live. López-Aparicio, in collaboration/dialogue with the curators Sema D'Acosta and Ivan de la Torre, proposes amazing devices (pantograph, kaleidoscope, gage, pointer, compass...) that help us question the ways we perceive and skecth reality and how to draw it. Tributes to Nacho Criado, Pepe Espaliú, Manuel Rivera, Paco Muñoz... materialize movement with the fundamental traces: A call to dialogue in which the ideas are conveyed and become concrete at the ends of countless pencils and it’s traces. This project has other places of exhibition with works contextualized in Finland, Helsinki (AVA Galeria) in Estonia, Tartu (Tartu Kunstimaja), and Sudan, Khartoum (Rashid Diab Art Center). It will be hale and move to Cordoba at the fest of the “patios”, to Valencia Pazycomedias gallery, curated by Jose Luís Pérez Pont, and to Kharkov, Ukraine by María Sánchez and Mario S. Arsenal.
Filtered Perception. Palimpsests: All established approaches generate prejudices and limit our freedom to develop. That is why society needs to generate "curtains", in order to protect the masses from reality, it is easier to conceal reality blinding light. The problem is that those curtains make us see a biased reality, it appears strange and distant to us, a world in which we cannot find ourselves and where we feel both scared and curious.
It is important to break this curtain and to trangress worlds. It is paradoxical how we feel participants of one or other place depending on which side of the curtain we are. But we cannot avoid the contradiction of wanting to stay at our side and going on watching the reality we see although it is filtered, from our anonymity safety we want to trangress the limit and become a part of the other reality as a knowledge and understanding process.
Images are superimposed like our memories and they are turned upside down in a way they create a new world. Reality, memories and oneiric live together in these works as a part of our perception of the world. The images are built with a structure of palimpsests in which some images are shown on the others, fanciful relations with present are made by persistence of memory, creating certain uncertainty in front of what is noticed and known.
