EXPO ‘CANTA I PLORA’ – La Basilica Gallery, Barcelona (ES) – 6 Fevr.- 4 Mars 2014

CANTA I PLORA / Trinidad Contreras / 06.02 – 04.03

Trinidad Contreras , a member of the Bórax08001 collective, will present her latest creations in a solo exhibition where juxtaposition plays an important role. Canta i Plora, the title of her new work, is catalan for sing and cry; two opposed yet sometimes complimentary expressions of emotion.

CANTA I PLORA / Trinidad Contreras / 06.02 – 04.03

« Canta-i-plora (Sing-and-cry) 2013
Containers belonging to ancient cultures where necessary liquids were transported.
Sophisticated medical equipment from past times that were used to inhale air in extreme situations.
Vital organs or futuristic prosthetics.« 
The three possibilities have a common function: provide “basic or primary needs”, and they suggest
or refer me to the primitive, to the survival, to simplicity, to the essence, to the human, to life… but also to the future, to necessity, to relief, to the struggle, to sickness, to tragedy, to the dramatic, to death…  what are our basic needs? Do we know how to ask for what is fair and necessary? Can we answer providing the essential? What will our basic needs be in the future?

All pieces consist of two parts, where the contradiction and the tension created by the form and the material seek a balance. Rigidity counters malleability, fragility opposes resistance, coldness counters warmness, softness opposes roughness, clarity counters obscurity, geometry opposes what is organic.
Sing or cry?
