Synopsis

Santa María is a city located on the estuary of the Río de la Plata.  

 

Concept

The artwork is composed of three different video-frames merged into one, each of which is one long take, the final perfectly coincides with the beginning. You can loop it and make it infinite. Santa María is a fictional city invented by the Uruguayan writer Juan Carlos Onetti. Santa María is a mash-up between Montevideo and Buenos Aires. SANTA MARÍA's three characters, as a sort of Sisyphus, are forced in an infinite pattern death-resurrection-violence-death. The staging, cold, surgical, motionless, without editing cuts, follow their actions that overlap with each other, regardless of each time-lapse.
