Threshold of Catastrophe

Threshold of Catastrophe is an aesthetic-political proposal where artists are committed to the abysmal dilemma that afflicts us all: climate change.

These artists put forward a fresh gaze at ancestral forms highlighting the oral traditions of water and earth; as well as forms of traditional cultivation such as plow with animals, marking the rhythms of life and death. They take up the teachings of wise men; ancestral understanding marked by the stars, which resonates, as a magnetic echoes in landscapes and seascapes. We find signs uneasy to decipher, that belong however, to a more generalized use of alpha- bets and arithmetics.

What is the proposal of this exhibition? Perhaps a return to the rhythms of the earth, to its echoes, to its biological and cosmic energy that mark the balances between man and nature. A metaphor to understand the cyclic gear that articulates the pictorial practice.

This gravitational attraction returns the focus to ontological questions as creators move be- tween diverse environments, formats and contexts, leading to open horizons.
