Visual art takes on the Summer in Santiago

“Cronómetro” and “Paisajes en Pausa” are the amazing exhibitions of this season, which will be in Museo de Artes Visuales (MAVI) and in Galería Casa Colorada respectively during next months.

Composed of pictorial and sculptural works, the Uruguayan artist Lucía Gianello launches “Paisajes en Pausa”, an artwork that establishes links among cartography, aerial photography and landscape studies. The exhibition was created from the autobiographical story of the migration and the current need of settle.

Selected from the call for exhibitions of the Directorate of Culture of the Municipality of Santiago, held during 2017, for the Galería Casa Colorada, the work is part of the celebrations around the International Day of the migrant.

Through various media, such as silkscreen printing, digital drawing and painting on wood, each piece proposes a sensible approximation to those elements of geography and landscape that have influenced the ways in which the artist moves and relates With their country of origin and their current city of residence. “An aerial and distant view that refers not only to airplane travel, but to the abstraction of the map. The altitude and macro vision, seems to pause the landscapes that we see, especially those who, although we do not want, are kept oblivious to us “reflects Gianello.

Denise Lira-Ratinoff defines “Cronómetro” as an installation composed of bales of solid waste, installed from floor to ceiling, delimiting the space by which the spectator circulates. It is accompanied by a reflective steel floor as a mirror that gives the feeling of burden of waste around so that later, when following the route, a glass closes the way, through which a photograph of a glacier is displayed, attached to a wall NE Gro. Under the image is a stopwatch that marks the passage of time.

This site-specific installation, located in the MAVI, must feel, experience, contemplate to isolate itself in the silence of the architecture composed by the bales of waste as insulator of all noise, so that only the sound of the whales dialogues with the Inside of every human being. The exhibition is a cry and an action in defense of our planet and the life of our oceans, of our present and future. From art, he wants to be an alert and a call to action for our society on the growing and alarming problem of pollution.

Under the concept of One Moment Art, the Chilean visual artist seeks in “Cronómetro” to raise awareness about the environmental impact of our actions, affirming that the time to act and generate real change is now.
