Road artist Jorge Pomar have shared with us his most up-to-date unbiased and self-managed undertaking in continuation of “Una Gotita En Suspensión”. The mural stands 15 x 35 meters tall and is positioned on the wall of a constructing in San Telmo on Avenida Independencia on the nook of Piedras.
“All of the keys to this nook”
The wall in query displays the marks of a constructing that was minimize down. They’re the indicators of an interruption. The traces are delicate, to note them one should take a look in love with the wall, which in some way is ready to seek out its imperfections, its breaks, its cracks and its easy components, however above all it’s a look attentive to the life within the wall, to the vestiges of the passage of time and the passage of the expertise of life via the locations of town.
May it’s that portray the sky on the facade provides it an aura of safety? As if it have been a psychomagical act to cover the fragility of our days and shield us from the motion of the world: if there’s a sky and no wall, it may not be destroyed. The brick is weak to human motion however the sky is unbreakable.
I feel that the illustration of the brick in sight is a part of the repertoire of attainable, digital and synchronic photographs which are condensed in locations. On this sense, it’s attention-grabbing to insist on persevering with to consider what was there and what occurred with what was there. This motion is a gesture of bringing again reminiscence, concurrently a signaling of vacancy: after we converse of areas which are not there, it’s actually essential to us to maintain desirous about what was there and what occurred to what was there.
When wanting up, it’s good to understand that each the sky and the “above” are all the time terrains of disputed meanings. Heaven doesn’t imply the identical factor to everybody, neither is it factually the identical for everybody. It isn’t equally accessible to all, and there are even those that are disadvantaged of seeing it. Traditionally and ideologically, the sky could be solely a panorama, a navigation route or the ultimate promised land. It may be the territory of technological or business conquests, or the goal of insurance policies that watch over the well being of these under it.
To color a sky on a wall is to train a type of playful gesture from the motion of chopping and relocation that makes the facade a continuation of the sky. There’s a mirage enclosed within the bricks, which could be an phantasm of getting the superpower to cross via partitions. However to color a sky on a wall can be to need to inaugurate a portal to the longer term, to the potential of one thing totally different, extra diaphanous, maybe utopian: a metropolis that doesn’t withdraw grey on itself, however that opens in the direction of the clouds, that’s not heavy and impassable however gentle; a metropolis the place extra consideration could be paid to the world surrounding all of it. Thus, portray a sky on a public wall turns into a poetic and political proposal: an invite to by no means take it without any consideration.
Jorge Pomar aka Amor works on various themes, reminiscent of as vexillology, geometry and nature, focusing within the examine of colour throughout a number of disciplines: murals, drawings, ceramics, installations, pictures, video and printed publications.
