“The perfect, singular moment, when reality looks back at you to show, exactly, what she has been hiding all this time: Nothing.”
Alejandro Tamayo‘s Ph.D. Thesis exhibition The distance from the Sun focuses on the specific dynamics and logic of operation of The Gales Gallery.
In his work, Tamayo draws attention to the specific conditions and dynamics of spaces, the objects that inhabit them and the actions that are likely to occur through them, inviting the viewer to take a closer examination of the overlooked and disregarded. Focusing on language, materiality and a felt sense of time, Tamayo attempts to open a tiny threshold of perception where, although everything remains the same, something also has changed.
