Lapsus

 

Julia Puyo's exhibition is a journey that, rather than dealing with the Covid as a period that begins and ends, deals with the pandemic as a symptom of a systemic error.

It begins with Lapsus Temporis, which are two parallel images separated by a span of one hundred years. A lifetime for Maria Branyas, but very little time in geohistorical terms.

Julia's artistic strategy of accumulating and relating existing images led to the creation of this pairing of two snapshots, separated by time, united by the pandemic. Both reflect bodies, more crowded in one, more ordered in the other. Sick bodies lined up in the first image, healthy bodies correctly squared in the other, like goods in the warehouse of a distribution centre. Health is logistics. Bodies are mass turned into data, contested between the public and private systems. The points of view and vanishing points of the two images are so similar that they produce a temporal estrangement that shortens the historical distance between them even more. It seems that the events of the past and the present have a logic that is too recurrent and parallel, as if history were repeating itself in the form of a farce. Or even as a caricature.
