The Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology invites you to view an exhibition by Carolina Otero 
 
L'INFRAMINCE

Friday, November 18th 2022 - Sunday, January 22nd, 2023 (Extended date)

1412 W. Alabama Street. Houston, Texas 77006

After years of introspection and decantation, added to the profound silence enveloping the pandemic, Carolina Otero has created one of the most moving tributes to the liminal process involved in listening to her own inner voice, unfolding her infinitely subtle language as a visual artist. 

An equally subtle musical electronic composition by Mercedes Otero, from 1983 titled "Danza de una flor para el desierto" or "Dance of a flower for the desert" will accompany the exhibition.

The term “L’Inframince” was initially coined by Marcel Duchamp to note ephemeral nuance in the world…sometimes translated as infra-thin, Inframince connotes barely perceptible thinness. Because of its ineffable subtlety, Duchamp implied that Inframince is impossible to define: One doesn't dare but give examples... like the warmth of a seat just left is Inframince, as the whistling sound made by walking in velvet trousers, two objects cast from the same mold, or a reflection from a mirror or glass."

"To me, art is the utmost sacred possibility of relating and communicating with others. Art has allowed me to connect with people throughout time and across the world."
