VELA Pavilion, Santiago

Pezo von Ellrichshausen 

Out of all the possible landscapes, the one we see daily is the one that disappears the most. Not so long ago, we traced the silhouette of a cloud on a window. The glass extended its functions with this drawing: besides unsuccessfully trying to be invisible to allow us to see beyond and of prodigiously trying to be a mirror, that continuous line was enough to turn the crystal into a canvas. With the figure of the cloud barely finished, its form and position had changed and, in a moment, it had evaporated against the horizon. The second cloud, the drawn one, vaguely reminded of the first one. With rather weak steel bars, elevated on top of a ladder, we built a third cloud that, in its modesty, exceeds the previous two. Between innocence and destiny, now the figure is filled in with a rare sky, rotating over itself, left to the fate of the wind.
