Tamara Jacquin

My artistic research focuses on the body, landscape and cultural traditions. In part of my projects I speak from the body. Of what happens inside and also of what happens outside. I understand the body as perception, memory, movement and presence. It is the space where things happen and a place of resistance. Inspired by my biography I create performative images that explore notions of identity, belonging and normative social influences. These images seek to intimately engage with the audience.
Another part of my projects studies how the body builds the landscape from memory. I use the remembered landscape to (re)connect with Nature. The memory does not only come from my memory but from past generations that inhabit me. In the same way I think that the viewer completes the work with his or her own memories. By creating places where the public is confronted with the landscape I seek to evoke the memory of sublime experiences such as feeling the wind, the trees, the leaves, the meadow, the mountains, the water or the stone.
In my latest projects I examine cultural traces of the past infiltrated into our contemporary society and how these have been resignified over time and history.
Generally in my production I adopt different languages to build a subtle and poetic approach that is reflected in materiality. I explore the language of sculpture and installation through photography, textiles, video, performance and poetry. I subvert disciplines by decontextualizing traditional supports in order to apply them to the construction of objects and structures, re-evaluating the bidemensionality of some media.
In my work I am not interested in showing a hyper-reality that can be understood from the rational, instead I am interested in inciting dreams that evoke realities.

Dreaming the woods II
"Dreaming the woods II" is an installation of wood and silk. The work constructs a route that develops looking upwards alluding to the posture of the body when it faces the sky framed by the trees. The project “Deaming the Woods” talks about the ephemeral experience of standing in front of a tree; the incorporeal experience of remember the nature. The work reflects on the relationship between human beings and nature. It is a work about memory. I seek to reconnect with nature through memory. Remembering the experience of facing the wind, the leaves, the grass… The work is not explicit, everyone will read in it their own memory. Bringing the nature as a memory into the city is the only way to make it present.

Dreaming the woods III
The project “Dreaming the Forest” speaks of the ephemeral experience of standing in front of a tree; of the incorporeal experience of remembering nature. The third piece in the series is a video installation, in which you can see a body with a body artifact that helps to remember the living forest, the action takes place in a skeletal landscape desolated by the cold. This piece talks about the memory of the forest. The work is a contact with the earth, a connection with nature that is evoked by the music of the wind. The video-performance is projected on layers and layers of silk of different textures. This silk interlining is hung over a brass tube which in turn is hung from the ceiling. The layers of silk give the moving image a three-dimensionality by fragmenting the image and replicating it in the different dimensions expanding its reflection.

Once upon a time… II
Once upon a time … proposes an uncertain vision of the future. Between fragments, the image reconstructs memories sewn together, alluding to the sublime experience of facing the wind, the sun, the earth, the leaves, the forest … common experiences that someday will be nothing more than stories.
Tamara Jacquin, Holz, Metall
I just came to see the garden
And he thought, I just came to see the garden. But it had already been eaten by dragons. The installation builds a suspended space where the dialogue between its elements, light, plant, photography and text, generate a soft atmosphere that talks about the link between humans and nature or what is left of it. The work is a dialogue between image and poetry that reveals the conflict between human beings and nature. This assembly of portraits and poetic fragments questions the integration of the being with its surroundings, with the earth, with the stone, with the wind, with the animals, with the plants. The structure builds a temple, a place of refuge and protection for man and his fears. The work is a wink to the first architectures, spaces protecting man from the inclemency of the environment but maintaining the connection with the natural world. The central light bathes the silk strips revealing compositions of photography and poetry that build visual stories that play between the threshold of the real and the dreamlike. The plant rotates slowly under the light. The portraits contemplate the garden from which, one day, we come. Fragments of poems by Alejandra Pizarnik, Carmen Camacho and self-authorship were used for this work.

Body Architecture I
"Body Architectures" is a 3 year project, composed of 5 series respectively. "Body Architectures" is born from a concern for the body. It presents questions and reflections on identity, on the meaning that society gives to my body, on what it means to have and to be, at the same time, a body. As Judtih Bulter explains "the body appears as a passive medium on which cultural meanings are inscribed". In this sense, it is recognized that the processes of incorporation fostered by culture shape the subjects of society, with the body becoming a symbolic construction. This project is consolidated as an investigation that metaphorically works the construction of the normative body from the construction of objects-prosthesis and the explorations that arise between body and object, with the purpose of developing diverse narratives that question the socio-cultural models of codification of the present. In this construction/exploration process, the body is constituted as a narrative space. The methodology itself becomes research, since multiple readings or narratives can be generated from the same object.

Precarious Shelter
The installation invites the viewer to enter and read the skin of the shelter in privacy. Written, a series of thoughts, dreams, sensations, emotions, accumulated over the years. The texts are taken from various notebooks that I keep. Working with the concept of refuge is to reflect on the space of safety and protection to which we go in certain hostile moments. Today, what do we take refuge in? For me, the only possible and unequivocal refuge for man is the word.
