Most scientists consider the human brain, in its entirety, as the most complex and unintelligible machine in existence, an organ that still conceals many unresolved enigmas. Part of its mystery lies in the limbic system, the area of the brain that controls emotional energy.



Emotions are a recurring theme in the fields of philosophy, psychology and anthropology, where aspects such as motivation, cognition and, above all, their communication and interpretation have all been explored, but without reaching any conclusive definition.



From the practice of contemporary art, in allusion to this mystery about which we have much information but few conclusions, Limbicus grew out of the fascination exerted by what is perceptible but non-visible, detectable but intangible, intimate and alien at the same time. Emotions as rich sediment for roaming around the diffuse, often dislocated, limits between what is "real" and what is not. Or is it?



From the omnipresence of Internet to the unreal universes of psychosis or magic and divination, Limbicus offers a broad spectrum of narratives to be shared and interpreted. The reading of these narratives depends on our degree of empathy and identification, of commitment and involvement in the game of chance, for which we are advised to accept the rules of the unforeseen and place ourselves outside the scenario of reason.
