La forma dels temps: pròleg

6 November — 21 December 2018

Miguel Ángel Ríos, Piedras Blancas

While refusing any comparison to traditional art media, video characterises for its ephemeral nature and a specific language embedded in time that brings it close to cinema. Generally devoid of a narrative structure, it often deploys moving images to construct symbolic and conceptual imaginaries that implicitly hint to specific social, historical and economical conjunctures. Being the prologue of La forma del temps, – an exhibition scheduled to take place at Casa Elizalde next January -, this video selection gathers together a group of artists that, by way of poetic and seemingly abstract associations between music and images, recount of precise geopolitical contexts while putting forth the potential of video as a creative vehicle of (hi)stories.
