Julia Aurora Guzmán’s exhibition Still refers to a void activated by the memory of its past presence. It is the exteriorization and formulation of a mourning process. Like the japanese term Nagori, meaning “the imprint of waves”, it refers to the nostalgia of the ending cycle, the atmosphere of the no-longer: the in-betweenness that seeks for the light that shines through the cracks, and for what can sprout from the end of a cycle. Still in the eye of the hurricane, stillness of meditation, finding the alignment and the mental, physical and emotional center. In still water is where ripples can happen, in silence is where the drop is heard, bringing the present back, to the source that is aware of its finite time.
