Los Libros de Espera / The Books of Waiting

Livia Daza-Paris
Artist Talk: Sunday, April 6, 14:30pm

The Books of Waiting is a series of diaristic videos projected onto three hand-made books that capture kinesthetic responses to childhood memories about state organized violence. These memories oscillate between fiction and reality, attempting to make sense of a history meant to disappear from official records during Venezuela’s 1960s armed insurgency.

Venezuelan-Canadian artist Livia Daza-Paris incorporates performance, video and poetic narratives to integrate themes of unresolved memories. The Skinner Releasing Technique greatly influence her work.

Autorretrato Apropiado / An Appropriated Self-portrait

María José Alós
Artist Talk: Sunday, April 6, 14:30pm

The starting point for An Appropriate Self-Portrait is the conviction that the film fragment is to word, what audiovisual material is to vocabulary, and what the film archive is to language. Alós builds a character out of fragments extracted from international cinema and weaves with them her own personal history: past, present, and future; both imagined and reinvented.

María José Alós, from Mexico City, has participated in several international festivals, among them Women in Film and Television, Morelia International Film Festival, and MEX-PARISMENTAL.
