TIERGARTEN. A GERMAN ROMANTIC GARDEN

TIERGARTEN. A GERMAN ROMANTIC GARDEN

AMPARO GARRIDO, 2019

AMPARO GARRIDO, 2019

(...)"Garrido's pictures remind us that what we see isn't exactly the Tiergarten but the enraptured feeling that the park conveys; a series of diptychs which, beyond the simple vision of a romantic park and its archetypal construction, presents the natural space as a place for the wild, the instinctive, the passionate, the sexual. They're places that Garrido photographs at different times of year and she confesses being fascinated by, seduced by pathways, colors and shapes which invite the sensorial, flesh, desire. The voluptuousness of the trees, leaves, trunks, flowers... they are direct connections to our more natural, wilder self, like the protagonist of the Lispector novel, yearning to let loose the animal she carried inside her and that, deep down, was herself.

That human-nature relationship, human animal - non human animal is the one that Amparo Garrido has been exploring throughout her career in different series, where animal portraits or the landscape are the protagonists. There is still some of that here, a portrait that goes beyond the portrait, a refection of the desires of those we observe, in the territory of the symbolic and the passionate."(...)
