The postwoman has someone who writes to him


Postcards from a stranger.
30 postards and wood structure. Dimension variables.

Will the postal carrier read the postcards that were sent to them by a stranger? In a narrative exercise where visual and text grammars collide, Helena Fernández-Cavada writes to the post(wo)man that takes the mail to Rostrum Gallery. She shares her impressions about the disturbing changes in the political landscape observed during a short vacation in the south of Spain. How are life experiences affected by the normalization of a reactionary and extreme right discourse? For this exhibition Helena Fernández-Cavada proposes grammars, visual forms and structures that can question the normalization of the intolerance and ultra-nationalist extremism that today run from south to north, threatening the most vulnerable. The golden light of the Mediterranean sun and a quiet vacation cannot hide under the warmth of these old shadows. Or is it perhaps the excess of light that hides the normalization?

The scope of my work is very broad because it is in permanent dialogue with the changing social rhythms, time perceptions and political landscapes.
