An Army of Crystallized Thoughts, 2010, 4 min, colour, sound
Courtesy of the artist
The whole of César Pesquera’s work is a seductive syntax of elements from advertising, film and the visual arts. In addition, the sound is also an important element in his work. He normally composes the music himself and it often acts as a rhythmic backbone and emotional guide. This is the case of An Army Of Crystallized Thoughts, a short film made in collaboration with the ‘vintage’ fashion firm Antoinette, filmed in Manhattan and Brooklyn. A female character walks absent-mindedly through the streets of New York and on her way reveals strange telekinetic powers. The young woman’s timeless beauty matches the ambiguity of her actions, which mix the performative and the surreal, elements that bring to mind fashion advertisements with sidelong glances at time and space that have a dream- like quality about them.
The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
