"Horizonte Vertical"

 

1st Floor Gallery

May 9, July 6, 2019

 

We only understood the insignificance of our mortal lives on the day we learned that the light from the stars is just the ghost of burning bodies that may no longer exist and that has traveled millions of years to reach us. We cannot help but feel awe, or perhaps fascination, when faced with the knowledge that the light of each one of those thousands of stars is actually the “past.” Every person, according to his or her degree of empathy with the cosmos, feels differently, which is what makes this moment so magical. It shows us how immensely different we are, even amid the incredible similarity that defines us. There are others who are part of this reality without ever having noticed that the secret of time shines and travels with the stars.

"Las muy largas horas de Clementina Palacios"

 

Galería 2do Piso

May 9, July 6, 2019

 

The title comes from Très Riches Heures of the Duke of Berry, an illustrated book of hours from the fifteenth century commissioned by John, Duke of Berry and produced in the workshops of the Limbourg brothers. As in Très Riches Heures, the works in this exhibition explore different moments of Clementina's life and her daily activities through painting, patchwork, the orchard and embroidery, a technique that is rarely valued and which this exhibition wishes to revive. Clementina's surroundings are portrayed based on the representation of the so-called rooftop herbs, which are medicinal and edible plants that are customarily grown in Chocó. These plants include anamú (petiveria) and cordoncillo (matico plant) which are local to the area and of vital importance in Colombian traditional medicine.
