Descrizione Opera / Biografia

Un cuento de Santa Marìa
4-channel installation | HD | infinite loop | B&W | Uruguay | 2018

Un cuento de Santa María is a 4-channel installation created during the art residence AIR MadreSelva, Montevideo (Uruguay). The artwork is composed of four stories of people without hope inspired by the atmospheres of the novels written by the Uruguayan writer Juan Carlos Onetti. Onetti’s novels take places in the imaginary city of Santa María. The main characters of the artworks are forced into a nihilistic and dark loop. The aspect ratio of the 4 channels changes constantly and slowly until the images will become impossible to be watched by the viewer.
This artwork has been awarded the first prize of the International Competition for the Intermedia Artwork, Kraków (Poland).
