José Sanint, architect, artist and curator recently curated "an exhibition that combines any kind of artistic expression that generates a call to the opening of consciousness of art."
His most recent project, Color Art Co + Iris, is a work that collects 5 projects of 5 different artists, focusing on the transformation of our reality, in order to provide resources to displaced families in Tibet and the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal.
As for the name, the natural phenomenon of the rainbow means many things to Sanint. Three, to be exact. The first, Tibet "when Lamas and Tibetan holy people die in meditation posture, appear as rainbow." The second, consistent with the first, refers to his late mother: "December 12 will be four months late and she, also have a connection to this phenomenon, he believed much in its manifestations If you realize, in. recent months have appeared about 3 or 4 rainbow. This is his tribute, "he says José. And the third is about the movement and transformation.
Color Art Co + Iris is a project that brings, for the first time, the works of Joseph, along with those of Swiss artist, Katja Loher. In addition, the exhibition will projects Camilo Villegas Colombian artists, the water works through engraving; Gabriela Sanchez, who focused their project on defining collages and image; and the project of artist Juan Pablo Barcelo, who is the subject of messages through letters and postcards to illustrate the change that has taken this practice with technology.
There two different artistic expressions with a similar message: on the one hand, Jose's project touches the theme of ceremonial costumes hand-woven with natural pigments of Tibet, which exemplify the era that preceded the invasion of the Chinese to this place ; and secondly, the work of Loher, who works in videosculpture, to send messages about nature and society to viewers.
The constant questions about our future, about the consciousness of choosing a better path, is precisely what Sanint wants to show with artists like these. His main idea is a need to open the eyes of people, to involve them in elements that they probably do not see or want to see. "I did an exhibition that has it all: music, dance, performances, theater, prints and fabrics ... all in order to reach out to the viewer," José told me.
Color Art Co + Iris tonight will open at 7 pm on 78th Street # 8-32 until 13 December.
