Sandra March vindicates “the scars as a way to remember our past” in the exhibition ‘Que nos zurzan’
Last Friday the Warehouse of Arrecife returned to live the good news of an exhibition opening. In this case it is the exhibition ‘Que zurzan’, by artist Sandra March, which will remain in the El Aljibe room until next January 11.
About a hundred people wanted to wrap the painter of La Seu d’Urgell in the first individual she does on the island of Lanzarote and in which she reflects, from the plastic and aesthetic point of view, her particular way of understanding human scars.
In his words “he has always tended to hide them because of prejudices and because of this social pressure to achieve the perfection of the body and the image, but I want to revindicate showing the scars as a way of remembering our past, as a trace of biographical events important in our lives. ”
The exhibition includes mural interventions, pieces of clothing, illustrations, small sculptures, pieces of jewelry and audiovisual installations inspired by texts by anonymous people who talk about their wounds, their scars and how they were made. Sandra March collected these testimonies through social networks and, subsequently, has been responsible for reinterpreting from her particular aesthetic vision.
The ultimate goal, according to the creator, is “that these marks of our past help us to recognize our history in a more free and unprejudiced way,” he said.
