In this photography exhibition, Eduardo Nave captures the scenes “at the exact time and place where tragic events have left a permanent wound. Nave goes where the terrorist organization ETA has carried out attacks from the 1960s to the present day and subjects himself to the nature of these crimes. On the same day, at the exact same time, he goes to the site of the tragedy and takes a photograph. The composition and exposure time of each picture recreate the location and length of the event. Unable to choose the most appropriate lighting or point of view, the artist shows the harsh reality of the moment. The exactitude and subordination to the events have marked the most experiential side of the project, even renouncing any aesthetic assessment.

Produced over a five-year period, from 2008 to 2013, the project also includes press headlines, radio transcriptions and spatial coordinates as well as video and audio recordings of each crime scene.

At the exact time and place is a portrait of loss and absence, but above all it is the recognition of a world snatched away from the victims of terrorism. The empty space in each picture invites us to acoustically reconstruct the fear and the atrocity of these horrendous events. Using historical references, the artist makes us think about how individuals and their surroundings are mutilated and silenced. Without a doubt, Nave’s work immortalizes the symptom in an image and calls for us to listen as a matter of urgency.
