D-Enunciation

D-Enunciation

by Alexandra Gelis / Jorge Lozano
Pieza de no ficción instalada con multiples pantallas

This story takes place in the Island of Mucura, El Islote Island and in Rincon del Mar in the Atlantic coast of Colombia. In Rincon del Mar we met “E” who asked us to video-record her because she wanted to speak out. She wanted us to make her story public. Alexandra and I had to leave this town quickly because armed police kept coming to our hotel. They were uncomfortable with our cameras, and with our relationship with the local population.

The installation is composed for more than 20 short videos, portraits of the Afro-Colombian population in their living rooms. Their living rooms are decorated in a way that looks like very sophisticated artistic installations.  The installation is composed of large video screen and on each side of the screen there are 10 video portraits creating the effect of a road to —-> the main screen that connects the stories of bio-political control that the town people suffered during 10 years of paramilitary control.  D- Enunciation is an experimental immersive work that breakdown with the linearity of political documentary inviting the viewer to have a closer contact with its population throught the use of multiple screens and surround sound.   

Después de un viaje por la Isla de Múcura, El Islote  Alexandra Gelis y yo llegamos a Rincón del mar en la costa Atlántica.  En rincón nos encontramos con “E” quien nos invito para que la grabáramos porque quería denunciar el asesinato de sus dos hermanos por los paramilitares.  D-enunciar es un testimonio de el control bio-politico y cultural (violencia sexual, racismo homofobia) que ejercieron estuvieron bajo el control de los paramilitares del Bloque Montes de María durante casi una década. Tiempo en el cual impusieron reglas de comportamiento y disciplina.

Esta instalación consta de 10 proyecciones en tablets con documentación de la sala de casas con sus habitantes, organizadas como un corredor o una calle del pueblo.

Video central 12 mins / 10 videos de 3 mins cada uno.
