Trenes, movimiento y poética plasmados en fotografía

Como parte de la serie de eventos públicos realizados durante julio y agosto del 2010 durante el curso sobre “Arte y Resistencia” impartido por el Instituto Hemisférico en Chiapas, hubo una exposición fotográfica del fotógrafo chiapaneco Favricio Huerta en el Centro Hemisférico. Según Fabián Vidal, uno de los estudiantes del curso, “En la exposición, el fotógrafo comparte el fruto de la observación tras el lente en diferentes latitudes del planeta, dando como resultado una colección donde estaciones, vagones, vías, trenes y figuras humanas que aguardan su transporte, son parte de las fotografías que conforman la exposición con un significado distinto para cada expectador.

“‘Lo que estoy presentando es un trabajo en proceso, es algo inacabado, la fotografía en este proyecto es un soporte y la idea es una exposición de carácter más conceptual; es indagar y problematizar en torno a la imposibilidad del movimiento,’ Huerta señaló en referencia a la premisa tomada de filósofos como Parménides y Zenón; de igual manera informó su intención de continuar con el proyecto desde otros recursos a la par de las imágenes.”

 

As part of the series of public events that took place in July and August of 2010 during the “Art and Resistance” course offered by the Hemispheric Institute in Chiapas, a photography exhibition was presented at Centro Hemisférico. According to Fabián Vidal, one of the students in the course, “In the exhibition, the photographer shares the fruit of his experience viewing things behind the camera at various latitudes all over the world, providing as a result a collection wherein stations, wagons, rails, trains, and human figures waiting for their transportation are fundamental elements of the photographs that comprise the exhibition and whose meanings are different for each viewer.

“‘What I am presenting is a work-in-progress, something unfinished. The photography in this project is a basis and the idea is to mount a more conceptual exhibition to investigate and problematize the impossibility of movement,’ Huerta explained in reference to a premise developed by philosophers such as Parmenides and Zenon. Similarly, such thoughts informed his intention to continue his project and use other resources besides images.
