Curated by Alberto Ruiz de Samaniego, Tectónica, Manuel Vilariño’s exhibition held at CGAC in 2015, inquired into the artist’s “creative and poetic universe”, materials and sources of inspiration. This exhibition is now the starting point for Ser Luz, a essay documentary that in a way extends it, proposing subtle relationships between the work of the photographer and the work of a blacksmith, a lighthouse keeper, an astronomer or a film projectionist. The end of the road could be none other than José Ángel Valente, the poet who, along with María Zambrano, has left a deeper mark in Vilariño’s work. Miraculously, the work with light or with words comes to life in the hands of José Manuel Mouriño; and it has also acquired an unique beauty.
