grito de glaciares
(here was never meant for you)
2015 -2016, 151”x 82” x 102” (3.5 ft per fabric), Installation: Projections on fabric, pigment print on fabric, paper clips and quadrophonic sound.
This installation was born from five rolls of 35mm film shot in between Mexico, Spain and the USA. A large portion of the films remained unexposed because the shutter of the camera was broken.
Therefore the photographs hereby presented were arbitrarily curated by a faulty camera. were pictures of my life in Chicago, of the few nights I was able to spend in my home city Madrid and of my impressions after a 2 week artist residency in Oaxaca, Mexico, after my family moved to Mexico City. Therefore, this project whose final iteration was an installation underlines the moments that escaped the grasp of the film and the time that is never accounted for in between those three places. The sound composition is a collection of recordings from the places where the images were shot. Additionally the voice overs are daily reflections based on free associations, the idea of memory, and my attempt to recall the moments that were not retained by the camera.
