까치 마을 (Magpie Village)
For 27 years I didn't know that my father's childhood tales was a place with a name and a location. But when I decided to visit, most of people didn't know the name of the place, they said we were wrong.
I grew up many times comparing the reality I was living with the colors and adventures narrated by my father, where our current life seemed to be always lacking of something.
I always wanted to meet that place, but it's impossible. The village was overwritten by urban projects and almost everyone left.
This work is a way of not allowing it to disappear.
Kachi Maul is a multimedia installation presented as a filming set consisting of a scaffolding structure, curtain, lighting equipment with color gels, colored background and a Tv with its stand. Displays the scenery from one of the narrations, and displays the bamboo that is a material that I've been using constantly on this project to construct temporary structures and as support for drawings and other artifacts.
Currently has 4 films that are displayed on the set's Tv.
- Hornets (english) 3:14 minutes, 2017.
- Al Viajero (español) 3:03 minutes, 2017.
- Solo con las manos (español) 2:43 minutes, 2018.
- Favorite Dish (english) 5:25 minutes, 2018.
Videos won't have subtitles.
