...Este fino borde de alambre de púas

...This fine border of barbed wire is a compilation of postures and creative processes of various artists, from different latitudes, which interweave in a semantic, affective and conceptual way around the concept of "landscape" based on two aspects : the first, as a critical statement from an experiential and testimonial angle about the territory, from an encounter, or disagreement, with the environment: the border, the conurbation, the plain, the tropics, among others. The projects are the result of the intersection between socioeconomic and political conflicts within the habitat, and derive in a visual equation that captures the consequences of forced displacement, environmental deterioration, excessive urban growth, as well as the exploitation and appropriation of natural resources. Second, the ideal of "landscape" is explored and confronted from its plastic conception; attending to problems of representation that range from architecture to geography. These proposals seek to alter or blur the very limits of the word, giving rise to a particular approach to that genre.


From a holistic perspective, this exhibition arises in parallel to a collaborative publication 2 that accompanies the work in the gallery. The print works as an index of processes or developments behind the scenes: it brings together sketches, files, texts or photographs about the routes and materials found by their authors; it is an intimate instrument that seeks to reproduce the unknown or furtive part of the artistic production that it summons.


In this way, the present work develops and puts in crisis the preconceived image of said concept from several fronts, inquiring fissures about what is understood, but also what is annulled, of the "landscape". Likewise, its mission is to moth-down the synonyms that accompany the word not only from the symbolic but also from the social praxis, which delimit a collective imaginary currently in bankruptcy.
