PUCHUNCAVI

ongoing project (2014-)
Fragments.
Puchuncaví, an area located at the Pacific coast northwest to Santiago de Chile, 
was a native american site - a southern terminal of the Inca road system -, 
and for some reasons the complicated structures of what we call a 'site' has 
kept haunting Puchuncaví.
Puchuncaví originally derives from Mapudungún and reads as something 
like 'where fiestas abound' refering to the tradition of the native fiestas. 
This is in contrast to a more recent industrial development of the area that 
includes copper refineries, steam power plants and a lading port.

The lading port could be regarded as the intersection of the site Puchuncaví.



















STRATA OF NATURAL HISTORY
16mm, color and BW, silent, 11'45" 2012


A cut into the strata of history I.

Double exposure of photographies of Kawéskar natives in Berlin 1881 
and the Zoological Garden (2011).
A Greater Rhea from Tierra del Fuego at Berlin Zoological Garden.
Bathers in the monument of Fuente Alemana in Santiago de Chile.
Searching for the Kawéskar natives' both persisting and invisible traces in Berlin.




















VILLATALLA
16mm, color and BW, silent, 20" 2011

Film shots and sound recordings over the course of one month in a remote 
mountain village in Liguria.
I do not work with the illusion of the synchronisation of image and sound, 
but with the idea that these 2 dimensions do exist as realities independant 
of each other, and as such do in fact emerge in our consciousness.
 
The world in Villatalla is not showcased but simply lived. 
The few remaining inhabitants pursue the few remaining work. 
Social life happens in a beautiful slowness of the present.
