FRICÇÕES E PRESENTE(S) Jaén, Spain, 2018. Time: 19:05 m, Format: mp4
This video was created in early 2018 as part of the Coloniality and Body: Relationships between Power, Art and Decolonial Thought. The research lists points from the past, which dialectically present themselves today. In this work I use videos from YouTube that articulate conservative speeches about events that occupied the center of the debate in the national artistic field, around exhibitions and artistic proposals that tensioned the current order. I make the collage and overlay of documentaries, TV stories, interviews and videos created for the youtube platform, proposing dialogues and clashes as a way of rearticulating the past, tensioning elements of history and socio-political structures. Poor speeches of logic, remove the possibility of a debate that is not linked to certain categories of violence, thus considering epistemological violence and the updating of the processes of subordination. The montage is interested in highlighting the power of dealing with the past through fragmented audiovisual crossings, as a way of elaborating the memory of the crisis. Not only establishing bridges between past and present, the work proposes a critical space that helps in the legibility of the present moment. Thus pointing out how certain ideas maintain continuities in the present, where multiple agents channel energy towards the annihilation of subjectivities and artistic and reflective forms.
This work participated in the exhibition Art and Memory in Times of Crisis (2019) at the Museum of the Republic (Rio de Janeiro, RJ), part of the XXII Meeting of Researchers of the Postgraduate Program in Visual Arts at EBA / UFRJ.
LIGHTS, WONDER, ACTION
Jaén, Spain. 2018
Time: 7:02 m, Format: mp4
The video starts from the idea of collage, making use of the concepts of performance, connectivity and genre. Uniting these elements in the direction of a reflection on the consequences of the continuity of violent processes arising from the impositions of gender. Transmitted live over the Internet, the work proposes an interconnection based on possibilities of the encounter between images of different realities and temporalities.
