The Bell, the Digger, and the Tropical Pharmacy

Directed by Allora & Calzadilla, Tony Gerber
2014, 21min, NY Premiere
Courtesy Gladstone Gallery, New York and Brussels

 

At a US-owned pharmaceutical plant in Cidra, Puerto Rico marked for demolition, a sonic digger whose shovel has been replaced by a cast iron bell tears through the walls and facilities of the building, creating music and a de facto memorial as a byproduct of the destruction.

 
Approximation in the digital age to a humanity condemned to disappear

Directed by Mario Pfeifer
2014, 30min, US Premiere

 

Filmed at Puerto Williams in Chile, the southernmost urban settlement in the world, this portrait of the last remaining members of an otherwise extinguished semi-nomadic nation is an investigation of the notion of cultural survival.

 
 
 
La Isla está Encantada con Ustedes (The Island Is Enchanted with You)

Directed by Alexander Carver and Daniel Schmidt
2014, 35min, US Premiere

 

This lyrical work adapted from a two-channel installation traces parallel histories of colonial power dynamics in Puerto Rico, the pillaging of the land and people in the 16th century, and a shift toward concerns about public health in the 19th century, all refracted through the lens of contemporary neurosis and erotic comedy.
