The Centre for Iberian and Latin American Visual Studies (CILAVS) at Birkbeck University of London warmly invites you to
The Flickering Darkness (Revisited)
Saturday 8 November 2015, 2.00-5.00pm
Birkbeck Cinema, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD
Artist Juan delGado will present his recent commission The Flickering Darkness (Revisited) alongside the work by Agata Lulkowska. A panel will analyse and reflect on his audiovisual work to improve the understanding of current food policies and their impact in society and art by elaborating on the political and economic factors that promote them.
Juan delGado’s The Flickering Darkness (Revisited) is a video installation filmed at the Corabastos market in Bogotá. The market is the largest of its kind in Latin America. Produced during a three-month residency in the city in 2009 and re-edited for this exhibition, the project explores the journey produce sold at the market takes, from its arrival before dawn to its consumption. Reflecting on the idea of belonging, and the need we all have for locating ourselves in an environment, it creates sense out of the city’s chaos and order, while inviting wider reflections on society’s strata and how they fit together.
