RODRIGUEZ OSORIO, Jorge Eliécer. De-contextualization in a museum of the body at "Calle de las Guapas" in Manizales and the construction of an aesthetic corpus. Rev. Lasallista Investig. [online]. 2015, vol.12, n.1, pp.177-191. ISSN 1794-4449.

Introduction. This article is the result of a researchcreation work that aims to de-contextualize the body of the transvestites as they are seen by a society that hides them, as it happens in Manizales. This genetates an aesthetic invisibility, due to the moral taboos related to this particular issue. Objective. The idea is to take them to another context, in order to make them visible. In this case they context is a museum, by means of an art work, because the artist -especially the one dedicated to paint- cannot just make do with the "reductionist, trascendentalist and reality representative" ways. Materials and methods. The construction of a corpus as aesthetic and visual consciousness in the research-creation process conceived at Calle de las Guapas, in Manizales, has, as a conceptual reference, the corpus of Nancy, also based on the implementation of Deleuze´s logic of sensation-impression .Results. An aesthetic and plastic body of work was genereated, and it demonstrated the creative process developed to make transvestites from Calle de las Guapas, visible. At the same time. The artistic and cultural patrimony of Universidad de Caldas was optimally increased .Conclusions. The images are intended for the viewers to re-construct the corpus proposed by the artist: exposed body, cracked body, aesthetic body. Therefore, the whole plastic work is proposed as an unlimited digression of "visual fragments", a hatching of an experience field in which what is unsystematic and de-contextualized are subjected to the open and multiple observation by the others, who can also act as aesthetic re-configurators. Likewise, from the creative side of things we use aesthetic codes in order to achieve the interaction in the contemporary artistic practice referred to narrative possibilities, creating, from there, an imaginary world of the culture that allowed the assumption of reality as a device for the creation and re-signification of image.

Keywords : corpus; aesthetic body; body without organs; de-contextualization; logic of sensation-impression; transvestite.
