There is a promise of trascendence in every breath we spend, in every idea, even if we don't consider to make it happen. We are dying all the time, every second. Fight against this ways of death is part of our way to live. We should be predisposed to take the death and resurrection as part of the everyday, as a necessary atmosphere to understand our memory. Does people think about to build re-thinked perspectives of trascendence and legacy beyond death? Do we reach a metaphisycal heritage trough nostalgia and through poetic of memory?

Ernesto Bautista presents at the Shangyuan Art Museum on Beijing the results of his production at the Program Residency 2014. In the words of Edith Medina, the work of Bautista breathes and develops between the other and oneself, an intimate vision of who we are as individuals, as people, but at the same time reveals what integrates us as a society. Loneliness, fear, lack, hope, death, distance, ephemeral, what is beyond one. A mighty roar of what we are and what we sometimes do not recognize.

Barney Hall said once: 'To remember is a way to honor(to revive) those who have lived. ' I conceive this project, starting from working with signs of spiritual enviroments as a reaction to reflections of sociopolitical concerns. We are tied to political statements which goes beyond every kind of death. The exhibition presents a selection of recent works gathered through signs of fire, death and memory. A proof of inversment of life after life with visceral intensity.

About the Shangyuan Museum: 'Some Chinese poets and critics speak of Shangyuan Art Scene as a utopia of art, which is to say that in a standardized, uniform society, Shangyuan Art Scene is in search of a certain kind of difference, whereby each individual, each creative self, every creative living entity is honored for the way in which they seek their value and meaning of life.
