Jorge Ivan Restrepo, HONDURAS-COLUMBIA
Last Saturday 13th of September in Zonadearte we enjoyed the intriguing work of Jorge Restrepo (Colombia), with the sounds of Walter Suazo (Honduras)
Minimal work, dynamic and intriguing.
A work that allowed us to fly with our imagination, to play, to laugh and question ourselves, drink wine and eat bread, the bread that I made that same Saturday afternoon for the people attending the show. Round buns speckled with sunflower seeds. Thinking of suns, of circles, of the simplicity, the simplicity…
During the last week my friend Gabriel Sasiambarrena and I worked assembling the exhibition, trying to decipher codes and respect signals.
This work, complex at times, takes us to our childhood, we look at it and look again and by being simple it is complex.
We wetted our hands in the water and it still results in an everyday action, it is about simplicity, subtle.
The sound accompanying each black dot, the ones from the wall and the ones in the water. I walked in circles, looking, looking at it, my steps accompany the circles, they follow the sound, I take pictures, if it is simple, it is dynamic, it is complex.
Thank you Jorge, thank you Walter.
Thanks to my friend Gabriel, G.A.
