PAUSA, A PROJECT BY MEXICAN GALLERY PATRICIA CONDE WHERE “LITTLE THINGS BEGIN TO MATTER”
It’s a unique, exclusive, historical document that will show, with the eyes of each of the photographers, the reality we are experiencing and that we do not know how it will evolve. It is a document with the force that only these radical movements can have that completely change our way of seeing and living life.
One of this exhibition/project’s curators, José Antonio Rodríguez, puts it like this:“Convened by the teacher Patricia Conde, a group of image creators, gathered around
PAUSA, a project that goes from the intimate to the palpable record - or vision - of the
environment; from that much carried stopped traffic (now, very stopped, wow!) to the
small moments. Symbolic actions, all of them as acts of hopeful breaths. Today and
tomorrow each work will be a testimony to a difficult time, no matter how beautiful
some images are, what a paradox.”
Starting this Monday August the 3rd, each month the pieces of 4 different artists will be “discovered” so the public can create a collection from these editions, in a simple way and at an unrepeatable price. The number of editions of each photograph is 20 plus 2 author proofs. All photographs are signed, numbered and certified.
The participating artists are: Cynthia Araf; Cannon Bernáldez; Alejandro Cartagena; Belinda Garen; Alexandra Germán; Javier Hinojosa; Cristina Kahlo; Patricia Lagarde; Moisés Levy; José Antonio Martínez; Francisco Mata Rosas; César Ordóñez; Dulce Pinzón; Ilán Rabchinskey; Humberto Ríos; Patricio Robles Gil; Oswaldo Ruiz; Adam Wiseman; Renate Aller; George Nobechi; Paola Dávila; Olin Heitmann; Sofía Ayarzagoitia; Laura Cohen; Juan Carlos Coppel; y Mariela Sancari
This first week, the presented photographs will be by Cristina Kahlo, Patricia Lagarde, José Antonio Martínez y Humberto Ríos.
Reyna Aguiar y Adriana Martínez, also part of the curatorial team, add: “In this framework, the aesthetic pursuits of this extraordinary series are charged with nostalgia, loneliness and introspection but also with a certain capacity for adaptation that is hopeful. And it is that like Janus, the Roman god capable of seeing the past and the future at the same time, the photographs of PAUSA are artistic testimonies of this hinge period that longs for what it was while looking expectantly at what is to come.”
