Animal Exhibition. Londonewcastle Project space. February 2015.
Collaboration with Borondo. Super 8 video. Loop.
We have barely left the city behind us when on the other side of the door, the damp smell of the branches covering the ground pours into us. Inside the first room we hear the sounds of cracking the wood beneath our feet, mixed with the chirp of the crickets... Along with the sonorous landscape, we can find three films made with a Super 8 camera and projected in a loop, resembling a triptych work of art.
The lack of precise control that, unlike the digital format, is offered by the analog, bestows an air of the accidental upon the images. Since each film has a different length, the three images that coincide and interact each time are never the same, narrating countless different stories depending on the projected composition. They present before our eyes ephemeral narrations rich in symbolism, in which we can see the artificial next to the natural; their apparent coexistence or their strong contrast.
What is human coming out of the earth. What is human looking at what is human. The adulterated nature. The dog behind the fence and we across the glass created by our own hands.
Dogs assume the cycle, lick the bones of other dogs, walk over the remains of their dead. We return to the nature, to the earth from which we rose, but the bond is broken. We are strangers in this environment, alien to the landscape. A white film covers our skin, plastic, synthetic and hairless.
Trying to crack.
