Exhibition sponsored by the University of Vigo, held in the Sala Alterarte of the Ourense Campus. This exhibition is the staging of a story. The possibility of telling shapes the history of art from the prehistoric venus to the steps of Holy Week. The artistic object is a fetish loaded with the cosmovision of its authors. Some time ago we believed that what constituted art were only emotional impressions that did not need literature, but without a previous story the truth is that the artistic object is largely silent.

In this exhibition, in the story that I propose, the past and future are mixed, the fear and the reality of the protagonist. The different colors underline the two realities in which the subject lives. The monochrome takes place in his mind and the polychrome is his objective reality, which in turn does not cease to be a fantasy for us. Without a fantasy in which we create it is impossible to create a story of our life experience and without it our culture would not exist as we know it.

Finally, I would like to refer to the mirrors. The mirrors emphasize, not the real, but how we interpret reality. Without a prior idea there is no appreciation of what we see. Of course, the mirror as such does not exist. It is a convention that we accept that this black rectangle in front of the work is. In a certain way we are the mirror and at the same time the character that is looked at, since we interpret what it feels to be reflected.

As a final synthesis, we could, in this context, paraphrase Calderón and use his phrase "Life is dream and dreams, dreams are".

Un hombre se mira al espejo y no se gusta 80 x 50 x 40 cm.
Esto es a lo que llegará 80 x 80 x 40 cm.
La vida es devenir 80 x 50 x 40 cm.
Pero el proceso sigue su curso 55 x 50 x 40 cm.
Decide ponerle remedio 55 x 50 x 40 cm.
Se recuerda años atrás 80 x 80 x 40 cm.
