On the occasion of the exhibition Maisons de week-ends imaginaires, Chiquita Ediciones is pleased to present the new publication by Laía Argüelles, Ciprés, the first book by the artist in our publishing house.
«The first time I looked out on the balcony to see the view of my new residence, I thought the cypress stood between me and the Sierra Norte. The second time I looked out onto the balcony, the cypress became the view, and remained so – a favourite view – for the year I lived there. This book is an album of photographs taken out of doors, sometimes with my elbow resting on the threshold, sometimes holding the Kodak camera at my fingertips. The collection of cypresses that are – but are not – the same is accompanied by the essay entitled “No toda ausencia (es carencia)”, which also begins and ends in that tree of imputrescible wood, and meanwhile thinks about the whisper of the written word, about parenthesis and waiting, and dialogues in its own way with other voices, from C.S. Lewis to Felix Gonzalez Torres, passing through Carmen Martín Gaite or Idea Vilariño.»
