About

The desire to dance with someone who is not here is the most recent exhibition by the Cuban-Ecuadorian artist Sofía Salazar Rosales, marking her second solo show at ChertLüdde.

For this occasion, the artist has crafted a series of sculptures specifically tailored for the exhibition space, delving into the intricate relationship between Sofia’s ancestral roots and her personal history. Once again, poetry takes center stage in her artistic practice, yet this time, dance serves as the pretext. How does one grapple with the longing to dance with someone who is absent? Can we replace the void with a tangible body, the silhouette with an idea, the object with its representation?

The desire to dance with someone who is not here prompts the viewer to consider dancing with a stranger, embracing the uncertainty that ensues. Within the intimacy of two bodies intertwining freely in motion, lies the essence of this proposal. Sofía Salazar’s sculptures are conceived as dancing bodies—fluid, permeable, and poised in space, awaiting a partner.
