Point of Contact presents…Darkness/Detritus/Illuminations- Eduardo Lalo (Opening Reception) Thursday March 26th

Darkness/Detritus/Illuminations, includes ink drawings, black and white photographs, and videos that explore the kinesthetic sensation of movement and of personal absence that takes place as an artist when creating works of art. Through a series of 3 poems and almost 100 works of art, Eduardo Lalo examines the idea of eliminating the mind from the creation process and focusing on perpetual, almost obsessive, movements of the body as it forms gestures and marks. Lalo describes this action as a fundamental expression of what it is to be human and states that “to draw is to revisit ceaselessly this discontent and this finding.”

Eduardo Lalo

Born in Cuba (1960) and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Eduardo Lalo is an internationally renowned novelist and poet, visual artist and educator. Lalo completed his studies at Columbia University (New York) and Université de la Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris), and is currently a Professor in the Humanities at the University of Puerto Rico. His books combine hybrids of essay and fiction, which he integrates with visual arts (drawing and photography), essays and fiction in his published work.

Lalo became an internationally acclaimed literary figure in 2013 upon receiving the most prestigious award in the Hispanic-American literary world, the Rómulo Gallegos Award, for his novel Simone. A habitual columnist and literary critic in the San Juan-based 80 Grados, he is also a video artist of films including donde (2005) and La ciudad perdida (2006). Featured in dozens of exhibitions nationally and abroad, his photography and video work presents an esoteric look at urban spaces through black & white images, sounds & narrative that capture the isolation of the post industrialization era.
