BOSCO SODI AND THE VOLUME OF DARKNESS

Bosco Sodi (Mexico, 1970) explores deeply in El día que nos volvimos a encontrar a universe quite distant from his recognizable large format and liveliness production to delve into the pleasures of the search for new material expressions and the abandonment of the chromatic in favour of texture, the depth of the absence of colour and concept.

JORGE EIELSON, THE LAST QUIPUCAMAYOC

The vindication of the Peruvian Jorge Eduardo Eielson (Lima, Peru, 1924) looks fundamental, far beyond any framed motivation in the round figures of the anniversaries. However, the work being done around the centenary of his birth shows a titanic effort to explore one of the most versatile artists in the plastic arts and, perhaps in his best-known aspect, in the literature of contemporary Peru.

CABIESES’ INTERCEPTED IMAGE

The geometry in Jorge Cabieses' (Lima, Peru, 1971) usual outline is broken with the action of the spontaneity of the curved and almost organic stroke in his second solo exhibition in the Spanish capital. The Lima-born artist thus proposes, in a certain way, a dialogue between the artificial of the synthetic and the atavistic through the incorporation of those more spontaneous brushstrokes over the usual framework of rectitude that the artist usually presents.

TOWARDS MIGUEL ÁNGEL ROJAS' QUIEBRAMALES

Two decades after Miguel Ángel Rojas (1946, Bogotá, Colombia) conceptualized in his project David Quiebramales his denunciation of violence and the use of education as the most efficient vehicle towards a catharsis for those who suffer it, the Madrid headquarters of La Cometa revisits his most emblematic work and reinterprets it as the framework for a kind of thematic retrospective. This commemoration of that first David Quiebramales reinforces a view that is still difficult to overcome and that, even today, serves to trace those harmful social dynamics that are created between society and war, the institutional and the political systems.
