I love you

by Sophia Borrero

The "I love you" are photographic records that are born from curiosity, like an infant who in his first months of life looks around unknowingly, and even so, continues to look, fascinated by what he sees, a primitive and natural action in man, this reminds me of the first semesters of the university where I saw General History of Art as a subject and they explained to us how in prehistory cave painting was characterized by the non-aesthetic representation of symbols, with communicative purposes, that is where they are born the first expressive manifestations of man, and I think how this infant fascinated by the unknown begins to represent it through gestures and progressively scratches, doodles that he decides to capture in physical spaces, leaves, skin, walls; which I think in a non-ironic way that we are muralists by birth, we love to scratch desks, tables, bags, any materialized object, and for what purpose? Communicate, but communicate what? As we adapt to society, understanding its norms, contexts, realities, codes, we generate experiences and create our own perceptions of our environment, we understand symbols and in certain situations the pristine man enhances that developed understanding, like writing a "te I love" on the wall, extolling a universal concept; loving someone, expressing a feeling, communicating an idea, without aesthetic purposes, just like the Neanderthals shaping figures in caves, or that child who scratches the doors of his room, a genuine action.
"Ya no te amo"
El pasado 25 de febrero en "El Bloque" @_elbloque, espacio expositivo autogestionado de la ciudad de Mérida, Venezuela, se inauguró el proyecto colaborativo "Ya No Te Amo", con la participación de Ángel D. Leiva @angeldleiva y Sophia Borrero @msophiabr. La exposición plantea un proyecto instalativo dual donde los dos artistas intervienen el espacio de la vitrina. En la obra se expusieron algunas de las fotografías de Sophia que conforman su ensayo "Te amo", expuesto en la presente exhibición.
