Collateral Landscapes

Collateral landscapes. 2010. Performance, graphic works, video.

Collateral Landscapes is a project under development in which I’m working with the perception we have currently on the war. In times of intelligent bombs war is not blood, death and suffering but a sanitized explosion which briefly illuminates the city.  The usual image shown by the media very little differs from that of a town during its annual festival.

This work is developed around a performance carried out in Gumiel de Izán (Burgos) during the patron saint’s festivities.  On various types of support (canvas, cardboard), children and adults hurled a great amount and variety of pyrotechnics.  The “bomb dropping” on the supports was captured in video (Faces).
