“Nothing is prey to death, everything is prey to life.”
(Antoine Béchamp, 1883).
Dialogue between Emilio Tarazona and Yury Forero starting from the exhibition of Teresa Margolles, where reflections about a place defined as a diffuse zone are addressed, contrasting the limit. From a bias in the artist’s work, not inscribed in the complete presence neither in the absolute absence of the deceased bodies but in a space between these extremes (or representations). Thus, corresponds to the traces of their decomposition or their residual extensions (neither full materiality, nor complete lack of being), both sustain an exchange that thinks the founded on the indetermination and the interstice. The body and non-body as a single metaphor of transition or transit of various types of fissures: that of a Mexican artist speaking of a sensitive frontier (Colombian-Venezuelan), which is suddenly is excluded from a speech that has been at the center of her own country. The objects torn from a reality and transposed into the representational space of the museum and that of the interlocutors themselves, whose journey and life is marked by migration, from Peru in Colombia and Colombia in Mexico. From these cracks it is intended to talk about ideas that are shaken after the forced identification of spaces of connection and exchange (roads, bridges) in the midst of vast territories of uncertainty (geography, landscape, culture) that blur the demarcations between Nations and subjects.
