Reconstruccioniepce- 10.10.07

brokenup.jpgRodrigo Bruna just sent in some images from Reconstruccioniepce which is showing at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes Curated by Angélica Peréz Germain - October 5 – December 3, 2007. If he sounds familiar, you are probably remembering our previous coverage of his incredible Toast “painting”. Believe it or not, this too is made from toast! Here is his description of the piece:

“The first photography of a landscape was taken by Niepcé in 1826. The particularity and beauty of this image triggered my attention to work with it. In the middle of 2006 I initiated my research and creation project titled Reconstruccioniepce. Through spatial and objetual projects I developed a reflection of this image and the fragility of the reconstruction processes. The material chosen for these works was bread, and the action was toasting. It is not longer the sun which fixes the images, but the vehement fire that fixes the vestiges of a landscape on white slices of bread. This statement defines my system of work and the material and technical displacement I made of the photographic process. Reconstruccioniepce V arises from the destruction realized of a previous version of this work at the Museo de Artes Visuales of Santiago.

The remains of bread that were left from this action are selected and organized in a ornamental border that crosses two walls of the room, proposing a new version of this enigmatic landscape.”

Another fine example of chilean meta-painting, so sad that theres no market for contemporary art in our country.

keep up the good work, don’t get burnt :-)

That’s wild! What a great idea! What’s next? A cupcake border perhaps?
