'ENCOUNTERS WITH ENTITIES' is an ongoing series by Xiana Gómez-Díaz.
The collection consists of short video pieces which look at nature as if for the first time, with a mystic-like eagerness and awe. As suggested by the word 'encounter', the series considers a vast otherness and its collision with the self. Mutation and exchange are key concepts of these texts. The series reflects upon communication (particularly between individuals of different species), isolation and longing, language, the power of imagination, and the utility of continuously trying to make sense of life.
The series production started in the summer of 2013, along with an art documentary short film called 'VACACIONS' ('HOLIDAY') (Dec. 2013). The film consists of a collection summery social rites and moments of introspection during the summer holiday of 2013 in the very particular region of Galicia (Spain).
A few pieces of 'ENCOUNTERS...' have been included in the film, sometimes in a more schematic version.
