Portraits of an unidentified body

43 min   |   Spanish   |  Anila Belenos  | Andrés Daniel G.

This piece is made up of 9 videos of approximately 4 minutes each. They are audiovisual stories built from 9 anonymous interviews to different people from the Departmental Institute of Fine Arts of Cali. The interviews were made to people who suffer or have suffered from anxiety disorder and/or depression. Each story was also built from a Romantic or Expressionist painting, of which the author makes an appropriation at the end or near the end of the video. The author tries to put himself in the interviewee's shoes by means of an alter ego that stars in the story.


The texts that appear as subtitles belong to famous writer Fernando Pessoa.
