A few years ago I lived in Puebla, Mexico for some time. In a street corner in the centre of town there was an old run-down cantina named Salon Correo. It opened sometime at the end of the 19th century and long time ago it was a lively meeting place. Salon Correo was a place where I felt at home, even though I came from a place on the other side of the world. Inside the cantina one could feel how present time and the past existed in parallel. Now and then I used to go to Salon Correo with other regulars from town but otherwise it was on it’s last legs.
Shortly after I had left Mexico and moved back home to Sweden I was told that Salon Correo had closed down. I envisioned the owner and the old regulars and tried to imagine what the deserted cantina looked like now, when life goes on elsewhere.
The exhibition is supported by Göteborg City Arts Council – Pronto!
