Curator: Lina López
Artist: Erick Beltrán
A house is by definition an enclosure intended to be inhabited. What happens when the house is not inhabited? Lacking a fixed function or defined status, it enters a liminal space, an indeterminate space suspended between two dimensions: it is no longer what it was and it is not yet what it will be.
How to access that space? What does the house reveal to us? Can we communicate with her? How to navigate a space in multiple dimensions? How to access the different layers that make up an object or a place?
Erick Beltrán proposes an extra sensory tour of the Casa Obeso Mejía, guided by a medium, presenting a map of a map or a palace of memory as a common thread. The work of this Mexican artist challenges the conventional precepts of the exhibition focusing not on inanimate objects, but on the invisible processes of information construction that create our relationship to the world. His work comes to life through human exchanges, memory and the construction of new relationships that revalue the concepts of object, presence and experience.
For this occasion, create a map file to locate or identify a dimension, to access it or move to another. To locate is to try to define the essence of a place and this is not established in a linear way but in multiple dimensions at the same time.
The visitor who decides to make the tour of the Liminal House should know that when crossing the threshold leaves the Cartesian behind to undertake a journey for the hidden dimensions in it.
