Here Not There

A project by Camilo Matiz

With his series of light sculptures, Camilo Matiz confronts the viewers with the duality of who they are and how they perceive themselves. The same object displays differently in the mirror’s reflection, as life reflects unrealized desires of the heart, mind and soul. This study of reflection includes three components: the neon writing, its reflection and the reflection of the viewer. Each contributes to the final sensation one feels when standing in front of the work.

Camilo is a celebrated, award-winning Colombian director and artist. His work has been shown in international art exhibitions including Scope, Miami and Barcu Art Fair, Bogota. In 2009, his artistic film, 1989, achieved the Official Selection in Semaine de la Critique in Cannes as the closing film for the festival. But, despite such recognition, Camilo chose not to publicly screen or distribute the film. Only 6 copies in 35mm were made and signed by the artist, an act from another time that depicts excellently the personality of this keen observer of reality.
