The artistic proposal is presented as a curatorial articulation of multiple and heterogeneous work processes, but characterized by mutation. They are processes of works in mutation and on the mutation, like a seismograph of uncertainty. In their various formats, the works will be joined on the website of the UACh Réplica Gallery linked to the Ars Electronica Festival web platform.

Jesús Román (Santiago, 1978). Visual artist. I’m interested in the notion of order and neatness, time and weight. The time in which the labor force works in the execution of the work; the craftsmanship put at the disposal of a time that is contained in the work and also my body that is the mediator between time and work. I also try to address weight perception. I consider „the light“ more suggestive than „the heavy,“ yet they are opposites in constant tension. My works can be seen as delicate weightless pieces or as heavy fixed structures.
