Placenta escarlata


28.03.2018 This time we unquestionably find ourselves before a desire alien to the expressive mission of the thousand tongues in the shadow. We are before a desire that investigates a new possible future, one forged from visceral and turbulent emotions, from muddled feelings and negative utopias. [...] Placenta Escarlata can be envisioned as a strange environment where the inevitable promise of a new twisted future is finally brought to the surface, and it looks like a dark room that holds the most intense moment of a ritual made up of a mass of bestial bodies in motion desperately looking for the new destructive incarnation of freedom, that signal that leads the dizzy arrow of an intoxicated daydream amidst the remains of a reality enraptured by knots of the repressive and that finally warns us that we have reached the gates of the pleasure dome. [...] Like the devout one who lets himself be intoxicated by the promise of muddled feelings and seriously undertakes the infectious multiplication of the occult, Nicanor Aráoz shows us, in this obscene chamber, further research that, before the freezing heat of neon light, shares the passion that takes hold of him in secret, that torments him until he is driven to utter the most beautiful spell in the history of the night—the one that stubbornly inquires into the possibility of a new life. Fragment of text “666999” by Nicolás Cuello
