It is a matter of time

The Lucía Mendoza gallery features on May 7th It is a matter of time, an exhibition of Mercedes Lara.

The exhibition focuses its discourse on the inseparable problem of space-time and arises from the reflection on how small changes can condition perception, fictionalizing reality.

Color and light are the protagonists of an exhibition in which the artworks are united around this fiction subject to the constant evolution of time. The exhibition revisits ideas such as uninhabiting, breaking, folding, reflecting, observing rhythms, pulling the thread or reading between the lines, but from an evolutionary perspective subject to changes over time.

Taking as a reference the Platonic philosophy that postulates a duality in reality differentiating between the Sensible World and the Intelligible World, Lara imagines a cosmos in constant change formed by mobile felt geographies, clay circumferences that emulate a solar system or a concrete moon.
