Videophagy / Videofagia

Digital Video Installation, variable dimensions. 2011.

The landscape is source of ideas of identity and dreams of belonging, but also of nightmares when confronted with the side of it that partakes in the real; when one gets too close, blurring the boundaries that keep one safe. Using videorecorded, personal performances, I carry out an investigation on ways to inhabit the world in mourning or skepticism, reflecting on violence and vulnerability.
The landscape on this installation is a view from La Perla, a clandestine detention center in Argentina. Being able to contemplate the beauty of this landscape while learning the horrific facts that took place within it, was one of the experiences that informed the making of this work.

The creation of the web has accelerated the popularity and consumption of video. The Online Channel is a selection of videos carried out through a call for submissions, where we explore the different approaches that contemporary artists take when working with video and the web.

Videophagy /Videofagia is e-fagia collective’s first project that is totally dedicated to video. The medium of video continues to be transformed by changes in technology. With Videophagy / Videofagia we want to explore the different forms in which video production and transmission have been influencing art and society. The project is divided in three parts: The first part is The Gallery exhibition at Function 13 Gallery; the second part is a Series of Screenings at Hot Shot Gallery presented in conjunction with talks, and a performance; the third part is an Online Channel presented on our website as well as on Vimeo
