My video work "Dark Paths" premieres at

PUPILA

Festival Internacional De Videoarte De Morelia

23.05 – 24.05.2024

Auditorio CSAM, UNAM Morelia and Museo Casa Natal De Morelos, Morelia, Mexico

"PUPILA"! This festival aims to explore diverse visions and perspectives through visual art and promote creativity in the field of video art.

“Dark Paths”

A visual metaphor for an indefinable latent threat. Present in an environment with no open exit. The search for a path that allows us to leave the threatening and hostile environment. Even the open sky is no relief as it too became part of a repellent environment. 

 

 

 

 


My contribution to the Land Art Festival Ode aan de Linge during the Pentecost weekend  from19.05-20.05.2024

in Heemtuin, Geldermalsen, ,Netherlands

"Far Away or 9051"

The Land Art installation reflects the theme “VERTEPIJN” (want to leave, desiring something in the distance) of the Land Art Festival. . You are in a place far away and yet everything is somehow connected to the place you left. But even when we leave, we always take things, feelings or memories with us from the place we left. But the desire to leave may not mean setting off for distant horizons, but can also mean wanting to leave ties, connections and boundaries behind. The work contains as well some autobiographical elements
