“He pleaded so much that he lost his voice. His bones began to fill with words.”
Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude.
Reparar Means To Repair uses video and gesture to explore intergenerational rifts created by mass violence and the attempts to mend damage done – both governmental reparations and personal acts of repair and remembering. The exhibition looks at the relationship between official narratives of reparation and the burden of personal healing through the frame of language and memory.
