Fragmentos: Pilar Acevedo

FRAGMENTOS: PILAR ACEVEDO

Through disturbing memories and narratives, the works of Pilar Acevedo take us back to an age of innocence, where "loss" is a constant reality. With the union of poetry and sound, Acevedo recreates countless memories from the childhood of women through the fusion of fragments, pieces, and layers of diverse materials. These memories manifest themselves as paintings and assemblages that at first glance, seem peaceful. However, once we delve into them, the characters stare back at us with hollow eyes and wonder, "Is this my guardian angel or monster, are these my saints or demons?"

A través de memorias y relatos inquietantes la obra de Pilar Acevedo nos remonta a universos infantiles en donde la palabra “pérdida” es una realidad constante.

Acevedo recrea a través de fragmentos, pedazos y capas de materiales diversos, así como poesía y sonido, un sin número de recuerdos de la niñez de mujeres, -los que se manifiestan en pinturas y ensamblajes -a primera vista apacibles, pero que al adentrarnos en ellos, los personajes nos miran de frente, con ojos huecos y se preguntan ¿Es mi angelito o monstro, son mis santos, o son demonios?
