Gabriela García Pérez makes symbols with her hands, she redoes and gives them new life when the prediction of death seems unavoidable. Gabriela also draws dreams and glimpses them when they are most hidden; she is an inveterate alchemist, and an effective insatiable researcher. Few days before her personal inauguration at The Center for Development of Visual Arts (CDAV (Spanish acronyms)) scheduled on June 3rd at 7:00 pm, the artist prefers not to make major concessions to her project and chooses silence, and then surprise. However, a tangential look at her proposal discovers a new display that does not ignore her previous poetics, but it focuses on new reflections on value of creation and unbreakable link between man and his vital space.
A Rose Is a Rose, it will seek to desautomate the rational universe created by humankind to go into the interstices of the untold story, the unknown event and forgotten names. It will use the rose as an emitting object of dissimilar semantic charges and it will subvert the myth built around it and break with the trivialization of the symbolic speech to develop new readings through metaphors. Then, we will be protagonists of a mystical and unreal space where truth becomes improbable, a space in which the artificiality of light finds its true nature.
Gabriela will recreate an atmosphere where Nietzsche’s eternal return meets its final sentence, hence we will find the hidden nature after each object, after each lifeless and corrupted materials. Four installations will star an exhibition, an organic and indissoluble quartet, where contents transmute and overlap. It is not possible to see them as isolated works, it would be to presage the death of the show, it is necessary, therefore to advocate for the participant spectator’s strategy and to walk stripped of aesthetic prejudices. Gabriela García is not intended to uproot the visual magic that suggests a rose or a multitude of them made of glass, or epoxy resin, she chooses to keep the tradition surrounding this symbol and recreates then new myths and legends; ones which are bold and intriguing, and others unprecedented or unexplored. Her vision is not that of an indignant or unhappy artist, it is a miracle worker who finds the sublime in the little things of life and in a close dialogue with nature, light, color and death…
