Cynthia Isakson Art Exhibition

RECEPTION: Cynthia Isakson Art Exhibition

The Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston invites you to Cynthia Isakson Art Exhibition

We were so happy yet we didn’t know
When I open my eyes, I photograph them; when I close my eyes, I listen to them.
For 25 years I looked at them, portrayed them, captured them, in order to keep them forever. Emigrating and maintaining close relationships seemed to be two incompatible concepts. But they turned out not to be the case.
I see them on my walls and listen to their recorded voices, our conversations. And suddenly the language, what they say, no longer matters. It doesn’t matter if they look at me. It doesn’t matter if they are no longer here.
It’s about that feeling that you get when you close your eyes and you don’t see them anymore, you feel them…

The exhibition corresponds to the Open Call 2020-2021, a project of Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston (IHCH).
Invited Juror 2021: Pablo Bobbio

El Instituto de Cultura Hispana en Houston te invita a la exposición de Cynthia Isakson

Eramos tan felices y no lo sabíamos
Cuando abro los ojos los fotografío; cuando cierro los ojos, los escucho.
Durante 25 años los miré, los retraté, los capturé, para guardarlos para siempre. Emigrar y mantener relaciones cercanas parecen ser dos conceptos incompatibles. Pero resultó que no lo eran.
Los veo colgados de mis paredes y escucho sus voces grabadas, nuestras conversaciones. Y de repente el idioma, lo que dicen, ya no importa. No importa si me miran. No importa si ya no están aquí.
Se trata de esa sensación que tienes cuando cierras los ojos y ya no los ves, los sientes…

La exposición corresponde al proyecto Open Call 2020-2021 del Intituto de Cultura Hispana en Houston (IHCH).
