Project Details

El principio, el paréntesis y el fin, el telón (The beginning, the parenthesis, and the end, the curtain) is a work on video and an installation that consist in a set of theater curtains, made in a way they look like patterns or sketches for curtains, with the thread visible, and the systems of ropes as well.

This scenario has four curtains which are open to an empty stage. It is presented next to a video work which is divided into three chapters: in the first, images of static curtains with a text that refers to curtains as landscapes of configurations replete with geographical features; in the second the curtains swing, shake and open to reveal the scenes, and their action potential for an audience ready to devour the narratives that could spring from it, and the script come from titles of fables; and the third part represents the end of the show when the curtains are closed, and the lights are lit.
