The exhibition “Collective in the white cube“, in the seat of La Posta Foundation, has allowed us to experience the work of Left Hand Rotation, SomosNosotros, Cinematrueque and Paupac Azul envelope and to some extent matteric. After the exhibition you can continue to enjoy these on the web, otherwise through the plasma or LCD monitor, a typical digital experience, other than with respect to the result provided by the projection of images on a reflective surface, even accompanied by documentary material registered actions -as was the case of “Overcome the barrier“ by Left Hand Rotation- or adopting a sculptural form and thereby encouraging a certain reification of the image -as occurred in the case of “Nothing to gain, nothing to lose” by SomosNosotros-. However, the most important difference between the viewing of images on the “white cube” and the computer screen, not unlike the physical aspects -such as occurs with respect to the quality of light-, but that has more relevance the different phenomenology that characterizes each of these experiences. While viewing the “white cube” it occurs in a crowded public space, in the case of viewing on the computer screen this occurs in the privacy of the private room (the paradigmatic case would be the room teen).
Top “The good guys” by Paupac Azul.
“The good guys”, Paupac Azul
“The good guys have tired us to be docile, and although we know what is at stake, are trying to undermine your step for the usual, as provided in his hands. We look at the system, and once we could think to deceive and make it our own. but as we are good guys, just got work to be weary and disappoint some”. This work is at once an intimate reflection and a plea against political correctness, passivity, stereotypes, conformism … and all this without falling into the rhetoric and the hackneyed cliches of fake pamphlet activism.
