La Habana
La Siesta, 1995 Meetings, 2000
A project realized for the exhibition "Beyond the Bridge: Joris Ivens, Source for Media Artists." Six interdisciplinary artists of diverse origins were invited to create a work that relates to the person and work of the Dutch filmmaker Joris Ivens (1898-1989).

"La Siesta" is like an audiovisual self-portrait that connects scenes from another artist's work - particularly the early films of Joris Ivens - with the siesta as a leitmotif. This occurs in the sense of an interval of quiet and relaxation and their dissolution upon returning to the wide-awake reality and the interrupted activity. A reflection on the aesthetic of creation, on subjectivity and objectivity, on experimentation and communication. Video projection on a white wall and a armchair in front of it.

"Meetings" is based on the medium of blueprints addressing issues of relationships, hierachial positions, gestures implying marketing strategies, campaigns and planning.
