Seeing the dark night through a window just to look and feel an outside in which cold and dull stars orbit the infinite melancholy with the hope of an accident that makes a thousand pieces thrown chaotically out of them on a crazy journey in which the contrails shine marking trajectories without direction or destination.
The Afterlife project is the extension of an impossible job to finish, that always returns and each time adopts a different configuration, more intense, stark and paradoxically superficial.
This project excavates with baroque tools among the ruins of an inflationary imaginary in which the production and demand for meaning are in imbalance, thus generating the indiscriminate profusion of images and codes and an incessant loss of poetic value. The reality is imposed, imperative; the real suffers, hurt.
The effects tend to disappear and to be diluted in the pure surface and in the accidents of language, in the communicative formalizations, in the calls for help and in the warning signals. The expression is suspended and is enclosed in the strange dimensions of the folds, unfolds and folds of the monad. There is an attempt to be contained in the minimum and not be encompassed by the whole.
Endings that are an afterlife built with the certainty of death and longings for justice, redemption and paradise.
The end as a possibility to build, inhabit and think the impossible.
Nothing to see, nothing to hear, nothing to say ... nothing to feel, etc ...
José Maldonado, Valencia May 13th 2021.
