Cal and canto
Cal and Canto (2002)
A 16:30 minute video installation sound installation located in two rooms. This work, through visual layers, crosses the city of Bogota from the restlessness, destitution and abandoned children, like ghosts that cry out for location and presence. The video moves from one side to the other among multiple medium-format screens in the manner of demonstration banners.
The work involves, as matter, both the dark enclosures in which it is installed, the video images and the screens on which they are projected, and the sound that is heard in unison with the passage of the images, made up of urban noises, among them the hawking of a woman who trades with bottles and paper. It is a persistent sonority that brings with it the vertigo of the city, the congested streets, places of transit in constant movement where an amalgam of engine noises and human voices invade us without us realizing it, a kind of urban opera or, as she calls it, a sound embedded in our memory.
4 videos projected on transparent fabrics in layers at the back of the room.

The work contains a persistent sonority that brings with it the daze of the city, the congested streets, places of transit to be interrupted by the cry of women who shout in the street and in the neighborhoods “bottle and paper”.
