Exhibition by Yorlandi González Fábregas. Provincial center of Plastic arts and Design. Polyvalent Hall, San Ignacio street No. 28 corner to Teniente Rey, Old Square, Old Havana. February 13, 2018 (inauguration)
Megapixel is a sample that establishes an analogy in terms of attitude with the photographic procedures used for post-mortem photography - a phenomenon that took place in 1839 until almost the second half of the twentieth century, and which aimed to photograph the deceased of the time, so that in that image it would look as if the corpse were still alive. In the aesthetic attitude for these post-mortem procedures there was an intention to translate the concept of life into an image, through a procedure that was also intended to be a way to eternalize.
This is why I propose to make remarkable the reality of this process, not the process of reproducing reality, but of the process that comes back to itself in order to solve technically and formally a referent model. I define a reality that is not reality as an external element, but as an absolutely aesthetic and plastic construction process, based on a formula in terms of image, a formula that constructs that image.
