Lagunas (work in progress)

25 May - 9 June 2015
Lagunas (work in progress)
residency by Laura Colmenares Guerra

"Lagunas", a fictional & interactive installation, is a triptych between memory, death and water. Water in "Lagunas" is stagnant, still water, which calls death and tells the story of a drowning man. The story of the drowning man is conducted by images of hydraulic fracking[1], making a transposition between the death of the man and the death of water in planet earth.  As parallels, both events develop through an interactive scenario, driving the spectator through archaic and prehistoric images of the Earth while exploring the delusional human drastic action towards nature.

[1] Action of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas known as “fracking” or as “Shale Gas”.
