Between pain and nothingness


A life without experiences of pain is a half-life. However, when we remember, it is not the original experiences that we evoke, but the latest update of them, as our brain stores snippets of memories that we recompose each time we recall them. Thus, the more often we remember an event, the more distorted it becomes.

Starting from this peculiar functioning of the mind, Pablo Mercado's work seeks to connect these theories in the visual field from different approaches. Mercado's work tirelessly seeks to understand and capture memories. Together, the parts of this exhibition form a nostalgic visual study of the enigma of our brain.
