The three free exhibitions will remain on display till December….
MERIDA – The principal exhibition, “Oracle” by Silvia Andrade, will be inaugurated Friday September 29, at 9 p.m. in Olimpo Cultural Center, room 3.
The photographer captured 64 images of flowers, herbs, pollen, cells and a lot of tiny details of plant that belongs to the Regional Botanical Garden “Roger Orellana” with a scanning electron microscope from the Center of Scientific Investigation of Yucatán (CICY).
In the exhibition, the public will see the flower of dzidzilché and chile max, pollen and a stoma (a cell through which plants breathe), among other tiny details that go unnoticed, said the photographer, who offers her work in images in black and white. She was inspired by the book “I Ching. The Book of Mutations,” which encouraged her to present the images in this way as an expression of darkness and light as well as silence.
As part of the exhibition, Silvia Andrade will present her book with the 64 images and their texts on October 14 at 12 noon in the showroom.
In addition, the Center will offer guided tours every Saturday in October at 11 a.m.
“Oracle” will be inaugurated along with: “Morphalia. Parallel city year 4890” exhibition of Javier Barrera, in room 1; and “Prodigal Muse. Cultural Brotherhoods” by José Luis Couoh, in room 2.
The exhibitions will be open until December. Visiting hours are from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Sundays, 10 p.m. to 2 p.m. The entrance is free.
Silvia Andrade is a chemist by profession and a specialist in scanning electron microscopy. In 2009 she was awarded the National Prize for Scientific Photography in Mexico. She has participated in various exhibitions in the country and abroad. She has publications in magazines such as “Claroscuro” and “National Geographic” Latin America and Spain, among others. Ten years ago she unified the areas of photography and science.
