FERNANDO VELÁZQUEZ, 2020

STATEMENT

TPS is an atlas of the empire of the invisible, a 1:1 scale decal of the state of the art of things of the world. Alienated from the past and the future, and suspended in an unknown present, we are overwhelmed by a disconcerted reality that surpasses any attempt of ordering.

TPS, is an oracle, a mirror, that tells us about ourselves from our memories and prejudices, a fire that invites us to think about the paradox of memory based on the quantum speed of data and the mind, today, in direct conflict with the paralysis of bodies and their marks.

What are your most recurring memories? What would you like to leave behind? What would you like to do otherwise? What would you like not to happen anymore?

Fernando Velázquez, on the 35th day of the Sao Paulo quarantine of 2020, Ca.
