    Gaby's chosen entry for this year's Bs As Photo '2014 was UNO. The exhibition, on display in front of the Cronopios room at Centro Cultural Recoleta, has featured the unedited works of the project that deals with the concept of "oneness", alongside other classic works by the artist. "You only need to stop and take a look at the world to see that beneath the surface, we are all one. This idea might seem unbelievable, but if there is a universal truth out there, maybe this is it. When I think over and over about what unites us to everything that exists, what connects us to the birds, plants, rocks, the sea... the idea that comes to me is that nature fully inhabits us, in both our body and our mind. When did man lose this consciousness? What gives us the right to think we can dominate everything around us? Maybe it's a way, a mechanism to make ourselves feel more special in this grand universe. Our world, the Earth, is without doubt the most beautiful thing that we know. Why is it so difficult for us to feel part of this beauty? Why is it so difficult for us to accept that we cannot come back after death? Since everything that exists in the Universe originated from one thing, everything that we see on our Earth is part of us. It's never occurred to anyone to cut their arm off for money but we destroy the jungle in this way. Everything is united by an energy that passes through all forms, without caring which kingdom they belong to. In the end, what is the difference between the beauty of a flower, a mountain, or a child? Sometimes I think that it's impossible to bring about change; that this destruction is also part of nature, of the natural evolution of things. However I also ask myself: if we have the capacity to question this destruction, we can also do something to change it, and this is also part of nature. This force is impossible to contain and stop. From UNO comes this change. From this change, we will return to our essence of being." Marcos Acosta. Read Less

BUENOS AIRES PHOTO 2014
 
 
El proyecto de exhibición para Bs As Photo’14, titulado UNO, se presentó en el espacio que precede la sala Cronopios del Centro Cultural Recoleta. Conforman esta exhibición obras inéditas de la serie sumadas a otras obras clásicas de la artista, cuyo inspirador común es el concepto de unicidad.
 
“Basta mirar el mundo y por debajo de esa superficie se intuye: somos uno con el todo. Resulta increíble la idea, sin embargo si hay una verdad quizás esa sea la única posible. Recurrentemente pienso en lo que nos une a todo lo que existe, en lo que nos conecta a los pájaros, las plantas, las rocas, el mar… aparece la idea de que a través de nuestro cuerpo y mente nos habita la naturaleza.
 
¿Cuándo el Hombre perdió esa conciencia?, ¿porqué pensamos que en verdad nosotros podemos “dominar” lo que nos rodea? Tal vez sea  una manera, un mecanismo para sentirnos especiales dentro del gran orden Universal.
 
Nuestro mundo, la Tierra, es sin dudas lo más bello que conocemos. ¿Por qué es tan difícil sentirnos parte de esa belleza? ¿Por qué cuesta tanto que tomemos conciencia de que no se puede volver atrás una vez llegada la muerte? Así como todo lo que existe en el Universo se originó del Uno, todo lo que vemos en nuestra Tierra es parte de nuestro cuerpo. A nadie se le ocurriría cortarse un brazo para ganar dinero, pero destruimos la selva con ese fin. Todo está unido por una energía que atraviesa las formas, sin importar a que reino pertenezcan.  Al fin y al cabo ¿cuál es la diferencia entre la belleza de una flor, la de una montaña, la de un niño?
 
A veces pienso que no hay posibilidades de cambio. Que también esa destrucción es parte de la naturaleza, del devenir natural de las cosas. Sin embargo también me pregunto: si somos capaces de cuestionar esa destrucción, también podemos hacer algo para modificarla, y eso también es parte de la naturaleza. Esa fuerza es imposible de contener, de detener.
 
De la conciencia del UNO nacerá ese cambio. De ese cambio volveremos a nuestra esencia. ”
