Juan delGado’s The Flickering Darkness (Revisited) is a 13 minute three-channel installation filmed at the Corabastos market in Bogotá, the largest of its kind in Latin America. Produced during a three-month residency in the city in 2009 and re-edited for Unlimited 2014, the project explores the journey that produce takes from its arrival before dawn to its consumption. Reflecting on the idea of belonging, on the need we all have for positioning, for locating ourselves in an environment, it creates sense out of the city’s chaos and order, while inviting wider reflections on society’s strata and how they fit together.
The work premieres at the Southbank Centre's Unlimited festival 2-7 September with an artists' talk on Saturday 6 September - https://www.facebook.com/TheFlickeringDarknessRevisited
