INTRO:
01.ESPAÑOL
Documentos.dulces es una pieza audiovisual producida para la exposición “Colonia Apócrifa”, MUSAC, León 21 Junio del 2014. Entre otras cosas, este trabajo pretende intimar - desde su persistencia en el hecho cotidiano - con las grandes ideas presentadas en esta exhibición sobre lo Colonial.
Lo hace presentando un documento audiovisual en el que tres voces extranjeras, comentan y meditan un banco de imágenes que captaron en un viaje a León.
En los comentarios en off de este viaje, encontraremos un documento visual astillado, en el que a través de un juego de voces – entre descriptivo y alucinado - se articulan pequeñas pulsiones en el ánimo de los comentaristas. Estas funcionan como un teatro íntimo –un macro paralelo- de las sensibilidades, reflexiones y hechos históricos expuestos en “Colonia Apócrifa”.
En documentos.dulces hay mas de 30 fundidos de negro, se habla del robo, la adoración, el mundo antiguo, el hambre, la amenaza dulce; hay presencias que vigilan, seducen, o se escapan. Los tratos con truco, el caucho. La fascinación del hombre que vino, o del hombre que estuvo. De vez en cuando – manteniendo un eco documental- hay juegos de ubicación; Mapas Mentales donde se muestran desde el aire los espacios físicos que visitaron nuestros protagonistas.
Se alude a Occidente desde la conciencia perdida en un mundo eléctrico y aislado –Máscara. Hay trampas de dominio de una persona que se ofrece - penetra como una fragancia visual- desde el placer del sabor del Cacao– That Man. O ejercicios de recuerdo y apropiación - del profesor fascinante - que vino y secuestró una infancia -Ring. Esos mismos ejercicios repetidos en la edad adulta, con la apropiación de los objetos que coleccionó un hombre misterioso - de su idea de Amor- en el último segmento – Emma Ejercicios de Apropiación.

"Sweet.documents" is an audiovisual piece aimed for the exhibition “Apocryphal Colony”, MUSAC (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León), León (Spain), June 21st 2014. Among other things, this work intends to intimate – from the persistence in the daily reality– with the great ideas presented at this exhibition about the Colonial fact.

And this is made by presenting an audiovisual document in which three foreign voices discuss and consider a set of images which they captured during a former trip to León. In the voice-over commentaries we will find a splintered visual document, in which by means of a voice game – half descriptive, half amazed – little urges are articulated in the mood of the speakers. These urges work as an intimate theatre – a parallel frame– about the sensitivities, reflections and historical facts exhibited at “Apocryphal Colony”.

In "sweet.documents" there are over 30 fade-ins; theft, adoration, the ancient world, hunger, the sweet menace are mentioned; there are watching, seducing or escaping presences. The trick or treat, rubber. The fascination of the man who came back, or the man who once was there. Once in a while – keeping a documentary echo - there are location games; Mind Maps where the physical places that our protagonists visited are shown from the air.

The Western World is referred to from the lost conscience in an electric isolated world – Mask. There are control traps by a man who offers himself – he penetrates as a visual fragrance – from the pleasure of the taste of Cocoa – That Man. Or memory and appropriation exercises - by the fascinating teacher – who came and kidnapped a childhood – Ring. Those same exercises repeated at adult age, with the appropriation of the objects which a mysterious man collected – of his idea of Love – in the last section – Emma’s Appropriation Exercises.

In sweet. documents, there is also an ironical update of the literary legacy of the end of the 19th and of the 20th century. In this document – inside the weird tourism presented – Herman Melville’s boredom, Joseph Conrad’s oppressive looseness, or Thomas Mann’s appeal and subsequent capture from astonishment can be understood.
