The Uruguay Pavilion is represented by the artist Eduardo Cardozo, with the project Latent, an immersive installation that seeks to create a relational act between two painters from a distance: the Uruguayan Cardozo and the Venetian Tintoretto. This dialogue consists of three moments: the nude, the wall of Cardozo’s workshop, transferred to Venice through the stacco technique; the vestment, an interpretation that the Uruguayan artist makes of one of the sketches for Tintoretto’s Paradise; and the veil, a fabric sewn from the scraps of gauze used to transfer the atelier walls. Thus, a counterpoint is generated between Uruguay and Italy, south and north, between Cardozo’s work and his reinterpretation of Tintoretto’s painting.
The room is enveloped in a static or quiet atmosphere, where a certain warmth – typical of what is familiar to us – converges with a crumbling and decadent air that allows a glimpse of the passage of time. This is the time of encounter, of dialogue, just as it is the time of internal reflection, of dialogue with oneself. In this relational act that Cardozo proposes to us, it is both what he learns and knows about Tintoretto and Venice and what he discovers about himself, in whether he recognizes himself or not in the dialogue with the other.
