Dinâmica Não Linear [Nonlinear Dynamics] exhibition at CCBB-São Paulo, Brazil (sole exhibition of Hector Zamora
in exhibition until January 2nd 2017

150 people dressed in black lean on the banister of the Centro Cultural Banco
do Brasil in absolute silence. They carry a book, also black, from which they start
tearing off pages one by one, to then let them fall into the free space. The sound
of the pages being torn invades the hall. Later on, the books, with their pages
carelessly recovered and put back into them, are left on a table, as if waiting for
something to happen, while the sound of the “rupture” lingers in the free space
as an almost tangible vivid memory. The performance/sound piece idealized
by Zamora for the CCBB remains programmatically open, without leading to only
one way of interpreting it. On one hand, it summarizes in clear way the Zeitgeist,
the spirit of our times, as it generates an intangible and elusive sensation of
dissatisfaction and oppression akin to what many of us feel while reflecting
upon the world we live in. On the other, the rupture carries a utopic message
of catharsis and liberation. The bravery needed to tear off the pages is the one
that can save us. Through these ripped books, the artist seems to say that
we will be able to start again, or, paraphrasing T.S. Eliot: these fragments we will
shore against our ruins.
