DENISE MILAN / TrincAr
video of the installation for the 13th Mercosul Biennial, General Curatored by Marcello Dantas
“TrincAr” is a metaphor for existence.
The tear in the wall brings out the ‘drama of matter’ where the air bubble is the place of conflict, “Of to be or not to be”: quartz can exist or disappear… Through the rupture, we penetrate the 130 million year old matter and contemplate its teachings.
The structures, cracked, make visible the alchemy that points the way to survival. Healing is the overcoming of conflict.
(The crack breathes)
A fissure erupted...
cra cra crac cracsand
I howl, squirm, scream
Run out of air
agitated, disoriented, unstable
forms atoms of matter
a breath of hope
the scar is announced
I catch my breath
