Version. Perversion. Inversion. Inexhaustible repetition.
Julia Milaré’s interest is in topics such as imitation / copying, mass culture, repetition, kitsch, trompe l’oeil, original / false, accumulation. She develops them through installations, objects and, especially, painting, which is thought of as a medium and a discussion of painting itself. Her practice is based on searches within sources such as literature, philosophy, the streets of the mass market and art history, among other sources that connect and boost the aforementioned interests. The objective result, the material and the means normally used, all come from this process. Currently, her interest runs through the idea of the image as reproduction, translation and betrayal, works of art from the collection of images, memory and virtuality.
VERSION. PERVERSION. INVERSION. INEXHAUSTIBLE REPETITION
“I imagined that network of tigers, that hot maze of tigers, giving horror to the meadows and herds to preserve a drawing.”
“I saw infinite processes that formed a single happiness and, understanding it all, I also understood the writing of the tiger.”
“Let the mystery that is written in the tigers die with me.”
Short story “The scripture of God”, El Aleph, Jorge Luis Borges, 1949
Tigers are frequently cited in the texts of Jorge Luis Borges. The animal’s fur is an image and translation of the ideas that run through Borges’ work: labyrinthine, mirrored, coded, symbolic, mise en abyme…
In this sense, I think of the visual data and issues that arise and suggest the fur (pattern, print, model, matrix, copy, repetition, accumulation, memory), and that interest me as a research. For me, the pictorial image has a translation aspect, trompe l’oeil, and the inverse and perverse that betrays our eyes.
