More than creating a fatalistic view on the matter of waiting, WAIT attempts to indicate ways that allow for a recovery of possibilities as diverse as the specifics of each piece—in media such as painting, photography, sculpture, installation or video—while also paying attention to their potential connections. The exhibition proposes a journey with a scenic aura, intending to involve the spectators in an experience where they directly or indirectly become aware of the perception of time: the condition that acts on waiting and defines all its relational possibilities. The works suggest us several subject matters, such as desire, the tension between body and space, photography and death, memory, the confrontation with the impossible, and life in suspension.
