EL REVÉS DE LA SOMBRA NO ES EL REFLEJO EN EL AGUA [THE REVERSE OF THE SHADOW IS NOT THE REFLECTION IN THE WATER] by PANÓSMICO and DARINKO CHIMAL at VERNACULAR INSTITUTE [from 20220429 to 20220618]
The exhibition El revés de la sombra no es el reflejo en el agua [The reverse of the shadow is not the reflection in the water] is the result of the shared research between panósmico and Darinko Chimal. The work carried out between the reciprocal landscapes of the Anahuac Valley and the Mezquital Valley, investigates the trail of sewage metabolism, soil formation, the technoscientific models of food, and how its impact has transformed the social and cultural landscape of this territory.
Their artistic praxis questions the phenomenon of capitalist surplus in everyday life through the intention to revisit these marginal problems with different approaches. The methodology of panósmico seeks to broaden transdisciplinary knowledge to rethink ecological relationships between humans and territories, while Chimal employs speculative archeology devices to inoculate other narratives of the surface and its evolved footprint. El revés de la sombra no es el reflejo en el agua weaves an echoed narrative on how we might have grown resistant to the sense of contemporary pestilence.
Note: The title of the exhibition was translated into hñähñu by the Otomí poet Margarita León: RA XUTHA RA XUDI HINGE RA HUEXKI HE RA DEHE
