Responding to the Emotional Architecture of the Museo Experimental el Eco, conceived by Mathias Goeritz, a space was created to show 4 works: two works of mine and two historical pieces by Brazilian artists Helio Oiticica and Lygia Clark (a metaesquema and a bicho).
The installation intended to put in dialogue their formal and discursive strategies as well as illuminate them under another light, and in relation to Goeritz own ideas.
Two iterations of the Kiti Kaeté project were shown: a retroprojection on selected cuts of a small collage and a slideshow of 27 drawings made after the cuts of the same collage, projected trough and glass embedded into the wall and painted white. Potentially any of this slides could be projected on the collage, fitting to its cuts and then illuminating them on the other side.
The zigzaging floorplan avoided square angles and opened itself as one Goeritz Biombos, as the golden lines of light in the slide projections remembered his Mensages.
In the context of mexico it was very difficult to not put this drawings in relation to mesoamerindian divinity Quetzocoatl, the feathered snake, that is also the god of light.
