Alberto Lopez Corcuera
Guadalajara (MX), 1983.

Alberto Lopez Corcuera makes his art out of elusiveness and discarded elements tainted by melancholia in a way that his works stand as subjects of introspection of his own self and a reflexion about disillusionment of something that once was and is no longer. In an assemblage-style that reveal unexpected convergences of mundane objects (postcards or school books in particular) these physical traces of one particular moment are blurred: old and new images, old and new thoughts, old and new knowledge shift into each other to create the emotional conditions of their re-interpretation; of these newly objectified conditions of perception, the concrete he uses to cover or freeze time literally capture ambiguous narratives that reveal something else: that the shade of time is purely emotional and that these objects should not be seen as memories of a personal history but as an ontological reflexion about the obsolescence of knowledge and the way we can reactivate ideas from the past to question our own present.
