If in El misterio de Aaron
Carlos Rivero positioned his view in parallel with that of child, in Las cosas
he establishes a dialogue of ways of seeing and experiencing a family holiday with Aaron. Car journeys, visits to the river, meals, dances and conversations take on different aspects, the strangeness of being present without being completely present, which Rivero seals with a quote from Sartre that doesn’t remove mystery and power from his sensorial look: “Even looking at things, I was a hundred leagues from thinking that they existed. They looked like decoration. I took them in my hands, I used them as instruments, I foresaw their resistance".
