The exhibitions reunited under the title “ The Red Thread” represent a complex hypostasis of this concept, given that its use, in very varied contexts, led to a splitting of its semantic core, turning it into an ambiguous, labyrinthine concept. One example comes from mythology. In the eastern cultures, rooted in China or Japan, it is said that destiny uses a red thread to unite two people who have been meant for each other since birth and they remain in a mystical connection, no matter the distance or time that separate them. It can stretch or compress but it will never be torn, because a power, beyond human being, decided the connection, without offering any solution for its untying. But the polysemy of the operant concepts also goes through politics, medicine, cinematography,etc, to be finally reducible to the idea of permanent connection. Thus, the artistic hypostases of different styles, genres and techniques must be seen as metaphores of continuity or, inversely, of impossible break-ups, with the specification that the term break-up refers to any person, belief, vision. This is the way in which we have to look at the works that are exhibited in the galleries: as mirrors of the artist’s impossible break with his/herpattern (or his/her paradigm).
