VACATIONAL AESTHETICS OF THE ENVIROMENT
A SOLO EXHIBITION BY JULIA ZURILLA
FEBRUARY 3 — MARCH 2
In Vacational Aesthetics of the Environment, Julia Zurilla delves into the metaphorical fusion of nostalgic past and tangible present, always from the perspective of binocular vision. Circular images in video collages and photographic diptychs intertwine records of family vacations in 8 mm with contemporary digital images of local environmental issues and natural disasters. The purpose of this juxtaposition of images is to capture the essence of binocular vision, merging two perspectives into a unique visual experience. This phenomenological approach seeks to highlight the complex interaction between past experiences and present perception. The proposal is not limited to visual aesthetics alone but also serves as a means to explore the intrinsic connections between our collective memory and the urgency of contemporary environmental challenges. By allowing these images to intermingle and collide, Zurilla invites the audience to reflect on the formation of our individual perspective on the environment and its influence on understanding and addressing current issues.
