An absent, elusive word, that is searched even by his work.
Cayetano Romero, in his exposition at La Casa Amarilla, presents himself by his absence, reflected in some of the works that he puts in front of us. He proposes a game based on the absence of responses in the face of the questions we all ask ourselves, like the need we impose ourselves of knowing the ending, knowing that what will come. But, at the same time, his work invites us to reflect on the beginning of the road, about overcoming the fear of the blank pages, of what will come.
The ceramic figures in the exposition have the words or symbols that they have accumulated in their search “tattooed” (or sewn), while they scan in balance. They transmit the sense of course loss (or loss of reality, with sheep chasing the wolf) that happens while facing the insecurity of the road, before the next step to take.
The search, converted in the meaning of life, pushes us to consider that maybe the objective isn’t as important as the road we travel and that How is more important than Why.
