Immersive digital exhibition disseminates life story of Frida Kahlo


Mexico City, Jul 6 (EFE).- A floor of white sand, walls that blend together, textured curtains, projections, and the words of artist Frida Kahlo in writing and in audio make up an immersive digital experience that opened Tuesday in the Mexican capital."I believe that the value of a piece of art takes on another meaning and another dimension when you know where it comes from," Kahlo's great-grandniece, Frida Hentschel, told EFE. (Camera: AMERICA NERI).SHOT LIST: THE IMMERSIVE EXHIBITION 'FRIDA', AT THE FRONTÓN MÉXICO IN MEXICO CITY, MEXICO. SOUND BITES: MARA ROMEO KAHLO, FRIDA KAHLO'S GREAT NIECE; FRIDA HENTSCHEL, KAHLO'S GREAT GRANDNIECE; MARA DE ANDA, KAHLO'S GREAT-GRANDNIECE; AND LAURA, SPETATOR (IN SPANISH).TRANSLATION: 1. MARA ROMEO KAHLO: It is a different way of seeing art, of feeling it. You can capture many details, small details that perhaps in a work as such can go unnoticed. It incorporates her music and you become aware of all the feelings involved. I think it is important because it really is a set of feelings. This is modern technology, and she, who was so avant-garde, I believe that the two things combine very well.2. FRIDA HENTSCHEL: She was always a woman well ahead of her time for this feminist movement that has been going on since then, and is now gaining much more strength. I think that Frida is a symbol that fought against the standards that existed at that time for women. 2.1 I believe that the value of a piece of art takes on another meaning and another dimension when you know where it comes from. So of course, we know these obstacles that Frida has survived and that part of her history that is very famous, but there is a familiar part that we know, that not everyone knows and that gives another dimension to all her work, to all her history.3. MARA DE ANDA: What we want is … to make known, not the Frida who suffered, but the one we know and the one we love.4. LAURA: It (the exhibition) is very good because there are many young people who do not know her work and it is an interesting way to make her known.
