Vibran formas, de los encuentros

Art is not a privilege of man

Deleuze & Guattari


A form is not only a limit: an outline. Of course, from a certain point of view, a form can be a unit.  It can be isolated to stand alone in front of the camera or in front of the magnifying glass of an investigator who enumerates their properties. Despite the fantasy of the undivided, the shapes tend to scatter the one. The sublime, the unrecognizable and the abject give an account of moments in life where the edge is destabilized by the magnitude, the unrecognizable and the ominous. However, in this exhibition works are presented where the forms, rather than destabilize, vibrate and meet each other.


Vibration is the repetition of a component in a medium that is encoded ––and that is often visible as the form of something. However, the codes are in constant transcoding, from the encounter between media: one that serves as a base for another, that is established in another, dissipated or is constituted in the other 1.

Forms can maintain their apparent stable limits, but by vibrating and coming into contact with other forms they can transform the codes of their own environment. Forms constellate spaces from specific visual, affective and epistemological encounters. Not only from their connection in the present time, but from their ghosts or–said from Uexküll––from their extra-temporal and extra-spatial plane, which the biologist and philosopher called “nature’s compositional technique”:

<<The spider web is a perfect portrait of the fly; but the spider weaves it without knowing in the least either the fly or its world. The spider, in fact, builds its trap even before having found a fly, and its web, therefore, cannot be the simple copy of a physical fly but, in any case, of a virtual one, as if the spider had in her head a “fly melody” that pushes her to weave it>> 2.

One last note: we are gathered here before works that do not anticipate with a system––grid, sketch, geometry, theory––the encounter itself. Let us imagine the bodies of the artists in a block of space-time (milieu, umwelt), also the materials, but never them and nothing else, always other elements: a feeling, chance, desires, rhythms, movements, gestures, music, language, spectators, visions. Not all consciously or tangibly, but all just as relevant.
