NextGen South American artists reinvent the diary form using digital poetries to conjure new fragilities and alliances. The state is also a body, and these interfaces, too often cruel or else filled with a pleasure that can hardly be contained—all this is explored via digital mirrors and memorials to past selves.
Pleasure Dome is pleased to host two screenings. The first will feature the work of three women: Adriana Garibay from Mexico, Veronica Abarca from Chile and Juliana Lobo from Brazil. Adriana and Veronica offer troubling double takes on the diary genre, while Juliana looks deeply into the line-up at Cuba’s famous ice cream stand using a single frame in an updated structuralism.
The second will offer the work of Colombian maestro Camilo Constain: The Engineer. His peerless technical prowess and painstaking working methods ensure that every frame is a dream come true. This is his first North American retrospective and will feature a bold post-narrative, a dance movie, a cross-dressing opera in one take, and several diary potions.
