Edison Osorio Zapata - Transcription of legends

2006.07.07 12:00 -19:00(Closed on Mondays)


 

Transcription of legends









Legends are engraved on glass pieces and "transcripted" to medias such as photo-papers through light set on it.
This process is a metaphor to differences between cultures, where the contents of a legend, for instance, slightly change when translated to another language, just like in the works presented in this exhibition by Edison Osorio Zapata: the manuscripts look differently when filtered by glass and printed on different medias.
