Te haré invencible con mi derrota is an intense and abstract conversation between the Spanish artist Angélica Liddell and the deceased British cellist Jacqueline du Pré (1945-1987).

I will make you invincible with my defeat Oct 7, 2011

 

This show is what my last Saturday night looked like.  I am kidding of course, but also I am not,  I cannot experience art without projecting myself onto it.  Which I won't apologize for because I feel it is the very best way to experience art.  It allows us to trespass the boundaries between ourselves and others and also the fortresses we build to bury parts of ourselves away.  Luckily for us Angélica Liddell also projects.  She has projected her time of crisis onto the tragedy of Jacqueline du Pré and then projects it out for all of us.
