15.09.2015 Glothic is a graft, a word that is somewhat like the guttural sound of a cry of pleasure stifled by a spurt of blood: a limbo in which the boundary between pain and pleasure is blurred, social taboos fall and a Freudian slip puts victims and victimisers on the same plane. With images of scenes of sadomasochism, to the southern Gothic novel of the 19th century and to the psychedelia of LSD, Nicanor Aráoz is the stage designer for a new genre of terror, transforming the large Barro building into a raucous party that threatens to descend into the horror of a bad LSD trip. Among the neons and fluorescent colours of drag aesthetics and house music, Aráoz creates scenes with zombie-like sculptures and gory tortures, in which black humour would seem to be the only possible form of atonement. The exhibition explores the idea of the ritual of liberation as a promise of transcendence that conceals on the other side the imminent possibility of slipping into a nightmare.
