SOBRE LAS FLORES DE CLARICE
OPENING THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Exhibition from November 12 to December 5
During the strange spring of 2020, where time and space expanded as if it were a fluid, ‘ABOUT THE FLOWERS OF CLARICE’ emerged: a suite of 19 watercolors inspired by the description of the Garden of Eden in the book ‘Water Viva’ * by Clarice Lispector.
The words become a stain,
brushstroke or stroke, they blend into color and water with care and affection, as if they were living beings, they are a tribute to the figure of this universal writer.
In space and time.
In opposites like full/empty, noise/silence, joy/sadness, feminine/masculine, life/death, etc.
Water as a flexible, extensive matter that knows no limits.
Words, defining and foreign to cultural borders, are the link for a journey between the two languages, Portuguese and Spanish, with the aim of uniting the two cultures both on this side of the continent and on the other.
Some of the 19 originals exposed
