DESCRIPCIÓN: Videoart produced from a perfomance. This perfomance consisted in making houses of cards whose fragility and the passing of people forces her to restart the task over and over again. In the backgound it sounds the audio from one film about the “tanquetazo”(1); later the film is proyected. In that images we can see how the cameraman and the camera (and with it the spectator) fall (dead) by a military shot. The fragility from the colectives constructions. The eternal return. Maybe the imposibility? And the will.
(1)Leonardo Henrichsen, a TV cameraman from Argentina, was outside the presidential palace in Santiago, Chile, trying to film an attempted military coup against President Salvador Allende. His lens zoomed in on one soldier, who was aiming a pistol directly at him. “Don’t shoot,” Henrichsen cried out, as his sound technician’s audio recorder captured the words. “Don’t you see that we’re journalists?” Moments later, Henrichsen lay sprawled on the pavement with a fatal bullet lodged in his chest, while his camera pointed up at a blank sky.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/11/12/AR2005111201327.html
