THE LAST EXHALE
THE LAST EXHALE is a research project done by the artists Elia López (Spain) and Omar Carrum (Mexico), throughout a series of residencies in Prague and Venice.
Through an exchange between contexts, cultural differences and artistic approaches, the artists will create a work composed of scenes that will be permeated by the uncertainty of improvisation in a continuous and unpredictable way.
Based on the unanswered questions that surround death, suicide and the different emotions and body states that developed after mourning, the psychophysical body will be interfered by the concepts of insistence, persistence and resistance as the guiding threads of the whole process through the complexity of human relationships.
“Yes, death. Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forget life, to be at peace. You can help me. You can open for me the portals of death's house, for love is always with you, and love is stronger than death is.”
