Quimera introduces the second edition of ‘bosquejar esbozar proyectar’ curated by Santiago Bengolea and Javier Aparicio. In this occasion, the project gathers the work of 94 artists from diverse disciplines, plus a site specific installation by Nacha Canvas and Sofía Quirno, called to translate their artwork to the primary action of drawing.
While the essence of this second edition remains, there were decisions that differentiate it from the first volume: this time, the work between the curators has been affected by the difficulty of the distance, since Aparicio is currently living in Spain and Bengolea in Argentina. The same thing happened with the artists that made the site specific installation: Nacha Canvas lives in Ushuaia and Sofía Quirno in New York.
Text by the curators: “nature is the only theory of art”. the swing of life, the flowing of time, share with the nature of things the trace that no one knows by whom is drawn, but that we all can see; some actually get lost in the horizon line that disappears as soon as we seem to be close enough. the third dimension is a trick played by the eye’s concave crystals, perhaps, it is really all flat, everything has only two dimensions and the swing of the line in the drawing of this flat horizon is the same that draws the spiral of time, which is also a cheat -that life belongs to us-.
the artist draws in its more pure and puerile desire of trapping life, of discovering in the trace the self that draws it all. to some, the drawing is so untouchable that frightens, seems to be forbidden; to others, it is the genesis of the daily language. but neither of them can dominate it; it is the trace that possesses the artist, letting it self go for moments, which the creator uses to leave a record of that ephemeral romance which stroke by stroke moves towards the swing of time, closely to the flow of life.
