Arte-Sano ÷ Artistas en el MAP

artesanoVidrio, cámaras de llantas, cerámica talavera, madera lacerada, papel amate, acrílico, grana cochinilla, esmalte de cobre, porcelana texturizada, cera, filigrana, arenisca, patina de cobalto, tela y hojalata, son algunos de los materiales que fueron utilizados para crear las piezas que se encuentran en “Arte-Sano ÷ Artistas”, exposición temporal instalada desde el 28 de noviembre en el Museo de Arte Popular (MAP), en el centro histórico de la Ciudad de México.

La exhibición nos remite a las diferencias y similitudes que existen entre artesanos y artistas  El artesano realiza piezas que en la mayoría de los casos tienen como finalidad la venta, su trabajo es técnico, usa materias primas y su aprendizaje se trasmite de generación en generación. Por su parte, el artista busca realizar una pieza única, diferente a las que han existido, ¿busca vender?; el artista no considera un hobbie su creación; desea hacer una obra que no sea producción en serie.

Octavio Paz, en  El uso y la contemplación (1973)  expresa “La artesanía no quiere durar milenios ni esta poseída por la prisa de morir pronto. Transcurre con los días, fluye con nosotros, se gasta poco a poco, no busca a la muerte ni la niega: la acepta. Entre el tiempo sin tiempo del museo y el tiempo acelerado de la técnica, la artesanía es el latido del tiempo humano. Es un objeto útil pero que también es hermoso; un objeto que dura pero que se acaba y se resigna a acabarse; un objeto que no es único como la obra de arte y que puede ser reemplazado por otro objeto parecido pero no idéntico. La artesanía nos enseña a morir y así nos enseña a vivir”.

Pese a las diferencias que puedan existir entre artistas y artesanos, destacamos que el eje de ambos gira en torno a  su cosmovisión y es a través de cualquier material que se busca la expresión de ésta y para alcanzarla se mueven con dedicación al manejar los colores, formas y textura para que la pieza más que transcender logre simplemente “ser” y quizá esta existencia nos lleve a nosotros –los espectadores o consumidores- a divagar en el aire: ¿Es un artesano un artista?, ¿Es artista un artesano? ¿Qué pasaría si  un artesano recurriera a la búsqueda de otros materiales? ¿Qué es un artista? ¿Lucra el artesano por necesidad o por costumbre? ¿Qué es arte?…

Compuesta por más de 130 obras que son decorativas, útiles, reflexivas o sensoriales y en algunos casos todo lo anterior, “Arte-Sano ÷ Artistas” estará en exhibición hasta el 28 de marzo en el MAP, ubicado en Revillagigedo #11 esq. Independencia, Centro Histórico C.P. 06050, cerca del metro Juárez o Hidalgo.
