The Project Room at PAC presents SQEVNV, the photographic work of Celine Croze curated by Claudio Composti.
Celine Croze's work always starts by showing a story. To get inside the rift. Fade away and find the time of the world.
There's this animal impulse that borders on urgency and cradles danger. To collect the residues of the action, to touch Man, to sketch the faces of injury or violence, to be as close as possible to it and to get only the material out of it.
She draws on her cinema and fictional writing background a view of the hidden world, beyond the limits we live and see


« Siempre que estemos vivos nos veremos » (SQEVNV)
"As long as we're alive, we'll see each other" is the last sentence Yair told me.
We were on the rooftop of the block 11, the mist enveloped Caracas, the crazy lustle of the city sounded like a funeral lament. It was a bullet to my heart.
The consciousness of its own endings was something both terrible and sublime. Everything was said.
The emergency of life, the fascination for death, the downfall of the country. The extreme violence and the absurdity of the situation gave the impression that life was only a game.


A month later, Yair was shot. He was 27 years old.
