Location (Still)

Location proceeds from the archaeological ruins of a Clandestine Detention Centre operated by the last Argentinian dictatorship (1976–1983). The ruins were excavated in the context of a lawsuit and initiated in 2004 to prosecute and judge the crimes committed by the totalitarian government.
Location aims at dismantling the conventional visual rhetoric of historical testimony and search for an aesthetic language that does not subject the history to the forces of ideological assimilation or mass media commodification. The project explores histor- ical memory and private articulation of that memory, materiality, spatial structures and strands of time. Not only in the information the work is based upon, but also in the medium itself, which condenses to become one with what is being depicted. The work wants to test our perception of the past and the present and the relationship between the textual and the visual information.
The project exhibition investigates materiality, spatial structures and strands of time not only in the subject I work with, but also in the medium itself. Which always con- denses to become one with what is being depicted.
