”Prefix” © Carla Garlaschi,Alejandro Contreras, 2008.
PREFIX: a dialogue between two walkers.
Is in deed this will of the walker the one that take us for different ways to live in this northern city. Unsettled political times, ideological struggles, tacked dreams of founding Mount Parnassus and images that are unachievable in the TV and libraries. Is ours, the relation between the things founded, idealized and remembered, so as the things we newly start willing.
We go reading between lines, watching how in the market the Garcia Marquez’s Innocent Eréndira and heartless grandmother buying the onions from Neruda’s poems while we sing “Brev från Kolonien”, but we just bend down to pick up a paper that fell to the floor and when we stand again the old woman has vanish, and for the smell we knew that a huge wave took her away… Days after, a suitcase came back with the current… what was in is our next exhibition PREFIX.
