Half Past You is an installation piece by Lara Rodríguez Cruz. By means of sculpture, the artist invites the audience into a fictive space: the corner of our mind where we put the memories that we don’t want to deal with. The piece speaks with the subconscious and its inevitable release. Denial & guilt had an affair, and left the room untouched, a shrine to desire and loss. Lara Rodríguez Cruz is opening a crack in the room where we let dust cover our mistakes, to finally confront how they gain the weight of a dead object, filling themselves up with the very air that once allowed for levity and pleasure. The installation consists of a closed room, to which the audience has access, and a second room that can be seen from the first one, to which the only access is by looking in from the first room. When accesing the first room, the audience is confronted with only an object, a swimming pool, which lays in the empty space, lit with mellow blue light. When looking into the pool, there is a tube going into it, it is conducting air into the (slightly filled with water) pool, which causes bubbles to pop inside of it. The tube comes from a second space that is behind one of the walls (a wall constructed for the purposes of the installation, see sketches). The wall does not completely close the second space, it has a crack in the middle (two separate modules make the wall, see sketches).
