Antony Gormley en San Ildefonso; Repensando al Cuerpo

Image

“El cuerpo es la cárcel del alma.”
Platón

¿El cuerpo es una unión de átomos y células o es una burbuja fugaz que al desaparecer deja su huella en el universo? ¿Qué es el ser humano? Estas son algunas de las interrogantes incrustadas en la exposición de Antony Gormley en el Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso.
El artista nacido en Londres en 1950, hace uso del acero, hierro fundido y del plomo, para crear esculturas que hablan acerca del cuerpo y de su relación con el espacio. Su propuesta escultórica invita al público a ser un elemento más de la exposición; lo desafía a indagar en un plano espiritual e introspectivo los significados de la corporeidad. 
                                                  
Gormley utilizó su propio cuerpo como modelo para dar vida a la gran mayoría de sus obras. De esa forma se concibió: Reflection II, 2008, Insiders, Learning to Think, 1991, You, 2005, entre otras. El proyecto artístico del también arqueólogo egresado de la Universidad de Cambridge, contiene pocas dosis de convencionalismos y enormes cantidades de asombro. Desde que se ingresa al Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso la obra de Gormley impacta los sentidos: entreverados de hierro y plomo suspendidos en el aire, mostrando el espacio en donde alguna vez estuvo una presencia humana, dan la bienvenida a los visitantes. Tal pieza artística es la antesala del viaje por los laberintos del cuerpo(transformado en acero y metal pero al fin cuerpo).

Cuando se está en el interior del recinto  lo inesperado hace acto de presencia. A la par del movimiento del público, de su traslado de un lugar a otro por el museo, se da un cambio en sus sensaciones y estado de ánimo. De pronto la vista se topa con un cuerpo boca abajo en el piso, con las extremidades extendidas, hecho de plomo y fibra de vidrio. Dicho ser podría estar muerto o tal vez estar aferrándose a la vida por medio de su cuerpo, desconfiando de la fuerza de gravedad (en una de esas Newton podría estar equivocado, y entonces todos saldríamos suspendidos por el espacio). Close I, es el nombre de tal ente.

En cuestión de segundos la vista se da cuenta de la presencia de diversos seres colgados en el techo. Sólo se ven sus cuerpos. Sus cabezas están en otra parte. Puede ser que estén en el piso de arriba, o quizás estén en el cielo experimentando la libertad. Learning to Think, 1991, es la pieza causante de tales reflexiones.

Al llegar a la sala obscura es cuando uno/a encuentra a You, 2005. Esta escultura está oxidada. Apenas ha sido alumbrada. En ella radica el lugar propicio para reflexionar acerca de nuestro yo interno. Es el sitio idóneo para darnos cuenta de la otredad. Breathing Room I realmente dificulta la respiración a las personas habituadas a los elevadores y a las casas construidas con ladrillos.Ya que el público se enfrenta al desequilibrio de un espacio modificado y constituido por diversas dimensiones. ¿Se trata de la realidad cotidiana o de una alternativa virtual de existencia?

A grandes rasgos la obra de Antony Gormley es la invitación para repensar al cuerpo, a nuestro mundo, y a todo lo que nos rodea. ¿En verdad crees estar hecho/a únicamente de piel y huesos?
