Rather than creating a fatalistic perspective on the concept of ‘waiting’, Wait seeks to provide directions that will make it possible to recover possibilities as diverse as the specificities of each work – in media such as painting, photography, sculpture, installation or video – while also observing their relationship potential.
The exhibition offers an itinerary with a scenic aura, so as to absorb visitors in an experience in which, either directly or indirectly, one becomes aware of the perception of time – the constraint that operates in the act of waiting and marks all its relational possibilities. The works offer various thematic clues, such as desire, the tension between body and space, photography and death, memory, the confrontation with the impossible, and life in suspense.
