The works of Páz Errázuriz and Lotty Rosenfeld, two internationally renowned female artists, integrate into their viewpoints the contextual traces of an historical and political journey: from Chile‘s military dictatorship to the democratic post-transition period.
The exhibition “Poetics of Dissent” – which includes photography, texts and videos – contrast both ends of an uneven space-time of the Latin American space where coexist on one hand, the visual anachronism of the black and white photographic “ freeze” of abandoned bodies and geographies (Paz Errazuriz) and on another, the vastness of a globalized, technologically-based, overly documented world by means of visual memories, worn out by the repetition of television format, in need of being shaken by works of art (Lotty Rosenfeld).
The introversion of helpless households the circumscribe within the privacy of confinement their needy identities (Paz Errazuriz) and, conversely, the media extroversion of transnational capitalism where economic value translates into the network potency and markets (Lotty Rosenfeld).
These poetics separated in time and space define what is “Latin-American” as a composite rather than a simple category; a multi-track phenomenon that comprises the separation and the mixing of heterogeneous materials as a recess to redraw the “South” using its off-centered grids, margins and peripheries.
