Video-installation with intervention live animated photos, heart beat, plastic envelope, intervention live: Ivana Reyero video-installation: Juliana Herrero. The original Herrero’s photographs are materials from an urban derive realised in 1998 together with Galatea Temerlin and Carolina Van der Meulen.
The video brings to life within a heart beat photographs from the series Preg- nant buildings taken by the artist during a derive experience in the surroundings of Plaza de Mayo in 1998. As an attempt to capture the ephemeral “clothing” of the city within its dressing and undressing once again, this work tries to grasp a present in continuous change. The urban envelope quotes a “filmic” experience of other times, where behind the curtain, the city, hides its alienation of produc- tion, the making off of the new. The video is intervened with a performance by Ivana Reyero, live, that focussed on a rhythmical transformation.
