Art images are archives of experiences. When we return to them, when we approach them from new contexts, from different questions, their latent senses are agitated. A work is reactivated, mutates into new questions, its pleats unfoldin se nses that we had not perceived. The juxtaposition of the images, their closeness in space, creates a contact area; a new iridescence occurs in what we see. The proximity causes unexpected radiance from the image.
Rethink everything is an exhibition conceived shortly before the pandemic began and which was resignified in the context of isolation that began in March 2020. Before all this happened, we perceived the symptoms of an exhausted world. Rethink everything proposes returning to a set of works made before the crisis that can be read in the present key. They are works that interrogate our relationship with nature, the radical differences in the distribution of wealth, the existence of inequalities, the meaning of the domestic, isolation, loneliness, forms of memory and feminism as a practice and as a theory that installed all these questions in advance. Faced with the symptoms of an upcoming return to normality, a question implicitly runs through the exhibition, to what state of the world do we want to return to?
