The heart’s eye saw something which the hand could never hold Exhibition
« This room, housing the flesh, is home for the heart: point of return and point of departure; contains those objects which, the sight fallen or fixed upon, are thresholds for the quick heart’s eye. The real thing, caught in the hand, through which the heart takes flight … The breath caught in the early morning because the heart’s eye saw something which the hand could never hold… ». This excerpt from Maya Deren‘s diaries and included in the volume The Legend of Maya Deren (Anthology Film Archives, 1988) constitutes an important reference to articulate a group exhibition about chamber films, considered as a kind of films between the domestic and the public, the amateur and the professional, the intimate and the collective. Based on the work of five artists and filmmakers, a series of practices that integrate a way of working based on the fleetingness of the gesture, on the delicacy of the unpredictable instant, while reflecting on the ways of inhabiting intimate spaces, will be shown.
Among the participating artists are Judith Adataberna, Valentina Alvarado Matos, Marie Losier, Callisto Mc Nulty and Bárbara Sánchez Barroso.
