In a space, notes and calls, indecipherable maps that, like all of them, are certainly liars. A crossroads of lines that are the structure of a fluctuating worldview, unfinished but resounding. Two main characters.
Two artists who talk to each other and join together compose an image that refers to the urgency of integration in this time of drowning. It is impossible to imagine "serenity", "balance", when we are so vulnerable. Nor is it possible to imagine that it is necessary. We are orphans and in this transition we are also parents.
The works of Ligeïa and Pablo make us feel that we are not helpless; both formats, somehow, knot around us.
In the sculptural objects, the wood crosses the print but the pencil designs, austere, crossroads on papers leaning on the walls. The soft, the fragile, the robust, the durable; they fight and talk openly in this whole.
The works ask for a special way of breathing, or are they the ones who through their works propose to walk slowly, to read skillfully? Away from preconceptions, these two visions or expressions have different roots, but they confess as a set facing each other in a dialogue. Both require attention, they are artists, they are vital and in a certain way they are building their discourse in the midst of irascibility. Evilness of times that occasionally, as in this case; they attract, bring them closer, reveal diverse forms, plural languages: other rafts in the ocean. In this proposal, the work of both artists gains even more strength by sharing the stage because there is something that is not coincidental or accidental nor forced.
It is a whole: a shared universe.
