Estrada (1993) "Galicia Terra Nai."

Text : Carmen Garcia-Rodeja Arribí

 

From the distance, the horizon is hardly perceived, misty and uncertain.Behind the wall (sin coma) that marks the traces, the precipice again, and a road towards the unknown.On the left, the bare trees balance the composition, while the fog weaves its mystery.Inside this delimited landscape, people gather, nest and dream of ghosts, of the incognito, of death and its warning, of the hauling of the wolf.Where does this road lead to?Sixty years ago, a group of Republican soldiers got lost in this fog. They were coming back home down a path of fear and dreams. They were deceived and got caught. Their corpses rested in a wet, cold grave, next to a pathway that led them nowhere.

Texto de Carmen García-Rodeja Arribí

 

En perspectiva, o horizonte apenas se percibe, borroso e incerto. Por tras do muro que sinala as marcas, de novo o precipicio, e unha estrada cara o descoñecido.Á esquerda ás árbores núas equilibran o conxunto, mentres a néboa tece o seu misterio. Na paisaxe pechada a xente recóllese, aniña e soña coas pantasmas, co incógnito, coa morte e o seu aviso, co ouvear do lobo. Cara onde este camiño?Nesta brétema perdéronse hai sesenta anos un grupo de soldados da República. Tornaban a casa por un vieiro de temor e de soños. Enganados, caeron presos. Os seus corpos repousaron nunha furada húmida e fría, á beira dunha senda que os levou a ningures.
