Behaviors was a curatorial project that was carried out in Mexico City in one of the showcases of the Pino Suarez Metro, in the Cultural Center of Cali, and in the Museum of Modern Art of Bucaramanga. There were two versions, a collective exhibition and a collective video exhibition.
Behaviors was a reflection around the contemporary forms and ways we have to relate: We often hear that human life has relocated, (including art), that our globalized world allows us to virtually enter a library thousands of kilometers away or relate emotionally to cyberspace; however, globalization does not cancel out local and everyday problems; neither in the individual nor in society.
Behaviors, thoughts and relationships we have with our physical environment and with those who share it, are the support on which this sample is built. The works have been grouped into three segments that aim to recognize everyday life in a specific environment, in its space and relationships built on it, manifested through the image:
Human figure: that object that today seems incompressible in the absence of intimacy because apparently only in the personal bathroom can we be alone and unattended, however, it continues to maintain itself, a being that questions, looks and understands itself as body.
Context: That space or place where the human being develops and exists, today is determined by the particularities of the individual’s daily life, its context can be the world or the living room of his house.
Contemplation: in this segment we find looks, textures of everyday life, small borders marked by artists.
