Exhibition La memoria en el cuerpo, MAC Santiago

07 / 14 / 2023 - 09 / 30 / 2023
MAC Parque Forestal, Santiago de Chile

Opening July 13 at 6:00 p.m.

For this exhibition, the Chilean artist Janet Toro revisits two emblematic performances carried out immediately after the Military Dictatorship.

This is La sangre, el río y el cuerpo (1990), presented on the banks of the Mapocho River, where the artist moves through the concepts of flow, water, blood, death, memory and the body, lying naked on a canvas, and stain another with blood.

Also part of this exhibition is El cuerpo de la memoria, presented in 1999 for the II Biennial of Young Art - a series of 90 performances, developed between January and March of that year. Some of them were realized at places of torture, and others in a room of the National Museum of Fine Arts, where the biennial was taking place.

Through the exercise of sharing and making public part of the records of the artist's personal archive, which accounts for radical performance-installations made in an indolent and denialist social-political context, passages of our collective memory are removed.
