A unique art installation entitled “Zapatos que rompen el silencio” (2007; Shoes that break the Silence) by Antonio Gonzales Paucar. Clearly, shoes are part of the show, but also the use of flies (insects) too. See details in images within post.
About the artist’s solo show (from Galerie Davide Gallo):
(…) In his most recent work, Antonio Paucar faces and examines themes dear to South American culture: first of all, poetry as an expressive vehicle for the common consciousness of a people; second, memory associated with travel, and third travel as a way of researching lost time.
Insect chirps, toad croaks and cries of birds in Antonio Gonzales Paucar’s work evoke ‘noise scenes’ resembling the Amazoian rain forest. The irritating, muddling sound fields result from precise, strained central themes, meticulous, as well as from equalizing sound-bodies from cans and hoses, and are like glowing, crackling bath salts. These are the sound experiments of Antonio Gonzales Paucar following extensive research that was conducted without technical support using nature and industrial materials. In this magnetic field between nature and domesticated culture arise video works such as “Composicion Manual” (2007), which is a refined register of sound produced by the artist using daily objects and selfconstructed instruments. Alterations of images and shrinking sequences generates a confusing and dizzying sound picture carousel.
