Rothkovisión 3.0

Daniel Silvo


On a stage as ordinary as Madrid’s Metro a cause for contemplation appears before us: a painting of Rothko occupies the framing of the camera and, on the painting, some passengers are reflected. In that underground journey the painting looks like a mirror. But when the wagon emerges into the day light, it is the landscape that we see through it. It is no longer ourselves what we can contemplate, but our exterior.
