Paseo del Miradero 1, 45001 Toledo

Image from the video about the myth of Adam and Eve, performed by Butoh dancers.

This wall in room 1, which demarcated the alficenof the islamic city (centuries 9th-10th), helps the artist to project scenes of the Creation of the world, which she imagines through the Butoh dancers’ aquatic movements. Butoh is an artistic dance in Japan. The images narrate the rise of life over seven days that elaps in seven minutes of video. The wall becames the universe; creatures of indetermined shapes appear out of nowhere, and the movements of the dance under the water are as well indetermined. Theydance their encounter with the other and their inexorable return to the primeval void. “It is a kind of void that communicates with nothingness, which is probably what we are, the place we come from and we go to: the inexplicable nothingness”. This is the reflection the artist suggests, rescued from remote time and brought to the present, a reflection on the other, the passage of time and spirituality or the meaning of life.

Under the semi-dome of the Mudejar chapel (room 5 of the museum), next to a unreleased photograph that she considers her self-portrait, Isabel Muñoz has installed three plasma screens that form a semicircle, where she performs the myth of Adam and Eve (or maybe it should be written Eve and Adam), the beginning of good and evil, light and darkness. In the centre, as a Pantocrator, a pendulum that is the diapason of life. On both sides, the different vital stages, narrated again in the movements of these Butoh dancers. And a question: What happens when two beings come together, love each other, suffer, and, at a certain point, the diapason indicates their end?
