:: In the Gallery

IntheGallery

It was early evening, I had left the movie, turned the corner, walked a few meters, and then I saw to my left the lit gallery. Two weeks ago, the artist and his friends were enthusiastically mounting the exhibition. Tonight, he was dismantling everything by himself. I had seen “Inside the house,” a film in which a young boy writing about the family life of a colleague for his literature classes attracts the curiosity of the teacher and both go snooping the family. As in Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”, on one occasion, they both sit in front of a building watching the lives of everyone through the windows. So I felt like the film was not finished and I was spying a neighbor too.

Era início da noite, saí do cinema, virei a esquina e depois de andar alguns metros, vi à minha esquerda a galeria iluminada. Duas semanas atrás, o artista e seus amigos estavam entusiasticamente montando a exposição. Hoje à noite, ele estava desmontando tudo sozinho. Eu tinha visto “Dentro da casa”, filme no qual um jovem escrevendo sobre a vida da família de um colega para suas aulas de literatura atrai a curiosidade do professor e ambos passam a bisbilhotar a família. Como em “Janela Indiscreta” de Hitchcock, em uma ocasião, ambos se sentam em frente a um prédio observando a vida de todos através das janelas. Então, eu senti como se o filme não tinha acabado e eu estava espiando o vizinho também.
