The invitation is to attend the ULS Exhibition Hall free of charge and be part of this third sample of the 2019 cycle, organized by the Directorate of Linking with the Environment and Extension.
In this regard, the academic and artist, Hernán Godoy stressed that “this selection of works 2018-2019 has a character of popular cultural transmission and in a certain patrimonial way. I fixed 3 points from the name: one in the Elqui Valley where the muleteers and breeders raised goats or could get guanaco meat for charqui, the leftover bones were preserved in salt in some drawers and were called salons. For the winter season, the bone became a food supplement when there was no longer fresh or dried meat. ”
In addition, in relation to the two remaining points, the academic added that “as long as the culture of the port, the porteños in the butcher's of horse or beef from the vertical saw cuts for casserole and all that type of material conserved the issue to sell it for dogs, but it could also be converted through a sieve into soup and became human food, that is another common thread; and in the plastic culture, as I am an academic and I do artistic creation linked to expressionism, linked to painting and also in showcases that are with intervention of low ceramic relief for me it happens to be a food, but to continue strongly creating my work artistic".
The exhibition will be open to the public on Monday through Thursday from 10: 00-13: 00, 14: 30-18: 30 hrs. and on Friday 10: 00-13: 00, 14: 30-16: 30 hrs. in the Exhibition Hall, located in Benavente 950 La Serena.
