Magazine “Cuadernos Terranova #1” – Ana Cuba, edited by Terranova. “Cuadernos Terranova #1: On Healing Faith. “On Healing Faith” is a short project developed by Ana Cuba as part of a master’s degree in artistic direction at the ECAL in Lausanne.
Strapped between a quote from a scientist about the miracle and another from an astronomer about science, Ana presents a series of meticulously prepared images that cover practices of alternative therapies such as chromotherapy, homeopathy, magnotherapy or Reiki.
With a look in delicate balance between respect and irony, aesthetics and discourse, Ana leaves the spectator the door open to critical positioning, reserving an uncomfortable place for him before the choice of staying on the surface or plunging fully into the background.
With its new collection Cuadernos (Notebooks), Terranova wants to vindicate a series of minor works that are no less relevant. Projects too brief to form a book, but too good not to deserve a paper edition, which rescues them from the magma of periodicals and online content.
