Summary note:
For his installation called "Metonymy", Luis Carrera-Maul (b. México, 1972) places 12 rocks on which he pours on each ink of different colors in a specified period of time. The purpose of this installation lies in showing the cosmetic changes that the rocks will suffer day after day. The artist establishes links between raw materials (stone, paper, color), secondary (installation, object, video) and idea (theory of colors, art topics, landscape and memory). The dripping of colors (of subtractive synthesis) on the stones wrapped in rice paper offers a new access to the theory of the colors of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe as an unexpected adaptation of his "chromatic circle". "In the exhibition-installation Metonimias, which was open to the public from October 2012 to March 2013 at the National Museum of San Carlos, the transition from natural elements to cultural artifacts is also fundamental, were Carrera-Maul resorts to the external appearance of the geologic material. The material reality of twelve stones placed in a circle is hidden by rice paper, meaning that from their essence other forms can emerge. This temporary exhibition is part of a processual narration in images, which begins in a town in the state of Veracruz located on the Atlantic coast."--Page 61.
