These days I visited a friend who is 40 years old Catalan who lives in Uruguay. There we lived together two or three years and it was through him that I met Thomas Cacheiro.
Sitting on the couch and made repassàvem people "paisito." We looked to put on IPL. Before us we had three ceramic Cacheiro common friend and we go about it, inevitably.
Not long ago I already mention Cacheiro in a post in this blog.
Today I'll let you talk to him through a text of an interview he did in 1999. If you want to read all of it,-which I recommend, you can do so at:
"Yo Cai Paso Averías a bit as subversive.
And much propaganda about the cae gente inocente
that, after, sleep las primeras Victims "
"No stem formas in mud,
Others villages that have been created.
Yo just stalk the land
tierra me what I should dado.
Mineral, Water and Fire,
forming tu mundo, Potter.
From the TOP of the World,
ese mundo es el primero.
If the district takes its tiempo,
no tiene el tiempo tailored.
Porque ese tiempo del Barro
tiempo is for life. "
This is one of the texts Cacheiro Thomas wrote them, something that could be perfectly well as a "certificate of identity" or, at least, a way to present themselves, from presentarlo. Ese text accompanies the catalog of exhibitions was opened in Montevideo pasado viernes 4 de junio, in Municipal Subway. Texts, as well as a su trabajo in ceramics at Maderas of your work and your life, you're creations are in representados descubriendo that we are here this morning, as well, with the catalog to view.
Thomas Cacheiro tiene 78 años. Thirty Three and nation, and is one of the most ceramists destacados of our country.
Cacheiro vive in Paso Averías at the waterside Cebollatí, ya unos cuantos years ago. It is then that there Radic debiera dejar su actividad as docente in tiempos of the military dictatorship, which, obviamente means a contrariedad in your life, a moment of disgust. This circumstance vivir lo Except in this place, in which there's very few people, no?
"Yo Sali barrels, juntaba Lena pescaba, llevaba semejante life of the ellos. Empecé And as soon as I apparently over ellos, Abriendo condom in relations"
TC - Yes. Search pobladito not there a hay passes of 50 people. And the majority are very gente mayor. Because the place does not pay for a Mistress puedes vivir. No hay de trabajo Media. La mayor parte de los inhabitants are Jubilados, older people, who are radicados in its place, with a minimum Viviendo very elementary.
Gente that quiero mucho, mucho relacionamos us with that. When you come any Creciente and leave me Debo place, not a place where you've got me I can not stay. Y eso hoy matter. Anyone in las casas de ellos Pido quedarme for a corner, and lo tengo. Open heme a very generous friendship, which cost me a bit to the top. Because there Cai yo a bit as subversive. And much propaganda about the cae gente inocente. That, after, sleep las primeras Victims. Eso lo dice muy bien Picasso Guernica empapela long as the pony, the first victim of the bullfight.
Y el tiempo fue reponiendo me in relationship with esa gente porque yo Sali barrels, juntaba Lena pescaba is to say, a life llevaba semejante of the ellos. And as soon as I empecé apparently in ellos, condom be Abriendo relations. I do not know if I explain myself.
DB - ¿Y usted fue "subversive"?
TC - Well: I resisted the dictatorship. ¿Eso is subversion?
In some medida, which is linked to this world of culture, art is a bit stranger in the city, is not a typo middle Extraño adapting them to Social mechanisms. In toda form of art, cuando incluye is something new, it is natural that the town rechace. Ya lo dice Plato, and remind him with cierta Frequency: if the artist that I can fit the denomination of artist-hay to expel the city porque Rompe the social pact. And the cities Tienen a secret pacts.
Yo sólo fue say no dictatorship which I expel me trabajo. Because it hurt me more than hurt me and I doliendo striking, I repone Although the condom that affect them mis-alumnos quedarme fue sin mis classes that eran my lifestyle. Dar a class of teenage previous history of art ... ah that would be! And the art in the mature communication. ¡Iba Cuántas times in class that estaba convencido prepared for Trat ese subject, and at the time of exponerlo Daba account of me not! Daba account that I had to check in more deeply and Others angles from the thing.
Y muchas veces con miedo iba a class of not being prepared. And the communication I iba Abriendo caminos, speaking of that llegaba me home and anotaba descubiertas things in class with the Dialogue of Boys. Eso fue muy importante.
And ... how can le voy a decir? It was my way of life, more than my livelihood. Apartarme hurt me much of eso.
DB - Pero eso no le impidió estudiando follow. You are estudiando Clicked-thru.
TC - Yes. In a cabecera leg libro tengo muy bueno that "culture with the Devil" by Herbert Reed. Dice Set in me and so mucha muchas cosas.
"God DID the man of clay
y fue su paso very fragile.
For me thirsty for God
hice me of clay vase.
Despite wake up
Please note that before the dawn,
between souvenirs and bushes
I shall sin quedando hours.
It hallaron a cacharro
the age ADVISED a village;
age but not be
Averías the populous.
Do not pretend con mis verses
hablar in profundo tone.
A potter no sabe
ver el mundo con palabras.
For animarme to offer
what verseando sostengo
tengo el tiempo I dudado
tengo las razones that. "
At the heart of the clay
Dream a dormant form.
Dream that mis manos Acuna,
Dreaming dreams of life.
Platforms and platform mis manos
rondando back in the neighborhood:
Velan the soul slept
Dreaming in the neighborhood is.
No Tienen pause mis manos
long as the neighborhood is Awake.
Mi vida no tiene pause
command is not desert me. "
