The photo, like the word, is thrown into time. The photo is a projectile, it goes beyond the stage of each viewer. It continues in time, it is mobile and is activated in the gaze of each spectator. The event is that which bursts in and cannot be predicted suddenly, unpredictable, unknown. And it only becomes an experience when it is shared. Emotion makes us uncomfortable, it takes us out of our comfort zone.
Photography is intimately linked to experiences, emotions, to our identity, to memory and to the way we connect with the world. Images move us, surprise us, frighten us, and remind us.
This exhibition brings together authors from different parts of Mexico, from different cultures and universes. The common thread is photography as a profound event, where cultural, personal and sexual identity make up the material that is put into play in the photographic act as an action that unveils and disrupts essential aspects of our relationship with the other and the world.
The authors of Body and Event ask questions from different perspectives about the body and beauty, about human nature through photography as a sometimes intimate, sometimes disturbing, sometimes provocative event.
Essential questions for a new generation of authors who find in photography the means to explore the society in which they live and their place in it through photographic actions that strain and question the relationship with the other, with ourselves as actors and spectators.
