The smell of visceraThu, 31/05/2012 - 20:00 - Fri, 07/09/2012 - 20:00 Javier Marquerie Thomas
I have always photographed my landscapes, the ones that belong to me and the ones to which I belong. The smell of viscera is a circumstancial project. Now, in my living room, I create these landscapes and I take portraits collecting these biographies. I externalise the interior, understanding yet forgetting what is outdoors. In the conception of infinities, logic is diluted and the scale of space and time becomes an abstract and irrelevant concept. The understanding of infinity relies on meaning, therein lies a paradox, infinity is incomprehensible, as it can only be imagined.
In order to observe something, patience is necessary, one look is not sufficient. Observation is only established in the realm of repetition. No single object is unique, just as no experience (of it) is reproducible.
In a rupture, dislocated from the biographies, only one time exists; a recess in the present continuous, a suspension.
A paradox of the foetus in utero, a paradox of infinity; a border beside another, a beginning next to an end, with limits but limitless.
Here, the smell of viscera is strong, it is hermetic.
