Sight and touch
Sight and Touch (ca. 1929-30), a project inspired by Federico García Lorca’s drawing of the same name, offers a new interdisciplinary approach to making the poet’s archive available to the public. We must understand this archive as a kind of magma that crystallises and dissolves in contact with works by other artists, along with texts that invoke him, aesthetics that connect different trends, or which appear to have been predicted by the poet’s works.
The drawing Sight and Touch [La vista y el tacto] (1929-30) has guided us through the archive, compiling documents from the legacy that are exhibited here, where the literary image of the texts coexists with textures, gestures, hands that criss-cross one another, fevers, chills, hugs or nebulae.
