The forest of memory

nits-digitals boscExhibition by Josep M. Jordana 

07.11.2014 – 22.11.2014

Opening, Friday 7th November at 7 pm

Video installation, forming part of NITSDIGITALS Cicle d’Arts Electròniques de Vic.

The visitor enters a space in deep shadow which recreates a forest. It is a unique forest, composed of ten cut-down trees. The trunks exposing their growth rings, giving indications of their biography.

Each trunk carries a monitor in which you may watch a selection of videos made retrospectively by the author for over twenty years, combined with videos made specifically for the installation. Like the tree rings, which incidentally are only visible when they have been cut, the author shows signs of life through the video work: video as a tattoo, also leaving marks.
