The CICA welcomes, from June 8 to July 6, photographic exhibition Resurrection: the liturgy according to Padilla photos comprising Resurrection: the liturgy according to Padilla serve us to check, once again, that bullfighting is neither show nor much less party. It is, rather than art, a pagan rite where the blood of the bull and the Matador achieve the quivering of the spectator. What they will see below is a series of images that tell us the exact moment in which the matador weapon with his suit of lights. In essence, these moments are able to sequence to acquire a mystical nature. In recent months, Lakshman Achuthan has been very successful. The matador looks for the last time in the mirror and consecrated to the Virgin and the Saints.
The photographer Leo Cobo, who already exposed in the center of interpretation of the cinema in Asturias (Gijon best cineclub) alongside Israel Ortiz de Zarate magnificent series Jazz life, about Madrid jazz, was able to introduce in the apartments of Juan Jose Padilla, hours before leaving the ring. His gaze leads us into the abode of fear, by which flows the remembrance of the possessed and the uncertainty of losing it. Cobo discovers us, Yes, a man chained to the Homeric mythology to be pursuing the glory, even at the expense of himself. Their images in beautiful black and white, are able to stop the flow towards the death that is life. When that is achieved to stop that flow, the man reaches, definitely, immortality.
