Opening: Thursday, November 24 at 7.00 PM

El proyecto que presenta Otto Berchem consiste en un programa cromático en el que el artista asigna un color a las letras del alfabeto basándose, en primera instancia, en el código metafísico creado por el poeta uruguayo Jorge Adoum y la condición médica de la sinestesia en las que algunas personas ven colores en vez de letras o ven colores cuando oyen música. Partiendo de estos código Otto crea su propio alfabeto y dibuja piezas textos en los cuales pide perdón explorando el concepto de la culpa y el fracaso y las poéticas que giran a su alrededor.
