Action put in light
About action put in light
During the months of October and November 2005, at MARCO´s adjacent space of Vigo Contemporary Art Museum, I presented an action framed into the collective exhibition "Aberto por obras" (Open for Works), where I proposed to everyone interested to answer the following question:
“On which part of your body do you locate your fears, blame and dark parts, that you wish to light up?”
The question is addressed to the spectator and any potential participant, with a specific purpose: asking them to meditate about their containments and the place where these are located in their bodies. In order to do this, I do a photographic session with each interested individual, I select one image and work on it. My intention or attitude is that of conversing with each of the images, one by one. I draw my attention towards the act “to shed light”, literally illiminating the body containment named by each participant. In order to achieve this, I use traditionally pictorial values such as colour, shape, line, atmosphere, the contrast of light and shadows, the composition, the emptiness, the movement, etc.
In all of them, I searched for the personal beauty and armony of each individual.
The means of achieving this was to listen and perceive all information both verbal and visual that I could receive from each particular individual.
