Farandsýningin -Misplaced Gaze- opnar í Menntaskólanum á Egilsstöðum þann 17. mars kl. 15:00.
Listamennirnir Juanjo Ivaldi Zaldivar og Tessa Rivarola sýna saman ljósmyndir og ljóð. Þau eru frá Paragvæ en eru þessa stundina búsett á Seyðisfirði. Sýningin byggist á reynslu þeirra frá því að flytja úr suðrænu fjölmennu landi í einangrað fámenni í mikilli nánd við óútreiknanlega náttúruna.
The exhibition -Misplaced Gaze- opens in Egilsstaðir Junior Collage (ME) 17h March at 15:00. -
Misplaced gaze- collects the works of Paraguayan artists Juanjo Ivaldi Zaldivar (1984) and Tessa Rivarola (1975), who currently reside in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland.
Both artists present this proposal with a melancholic hue, intentionally marked by their migratory experiences. Coming from a tropical country (Paraguay) and now finding themselves traversed by the radical experience of being -isolated- and away from the noise of cities and crowds, intimate with an overflowing nature, which is giving signs of drastic changes.
Photography and poetry seek to accommodate what exceeds it.
In Photography, decomposition emerges as a vehicle to express a question, which is also a deep distress, how far are we going to go with predation?
The networks are full of beautiful panoramics, as if it were about cosmetics so as not to face the urgent.
The breakage, the fragments, appear as an expression of chaos and despair in the face of irreversible damage. Juanjo shreds the panorama, tears it to pieces to confront the predatory homo sapiens.
Photography and poetry dialogue with silence and suspended time.
The word tries to account for its insufficiency. Therefore, Tessa offers a series of bunches of words with a fruit to be discovered, the adventure of the inner explosion.
