Third world

Video that was shown on the televisions of the installation. New edition in 2007


Year: 2004

Awarded Place of Honour, „IV bienal del istmo centroamericano“,
Panamá, Panamá, 2004

The installation was made for the IV Biennial of Central American Art in Panamá. With this presentation I started the project “Third world”, where I traveled through Central America portraying its people and its architecture.

In an empty room we see two televisions on pedestals. The images on the televisions sometimes coincide and sometimes differ. Televisions show a kind of videographic cubism that tries to capture a fragment of Central American time/space.
