2009 Not looking forward, ATM Contemporary, Gijón

The exhibition “Not Looking Forward” at ATM contemporary in Gijón was comprised of a series of four large scale photographs, a sound interactive video screen and a multi media installation with a plaster Greek buste, sunglasses, a camera and a television screen. The photos were taken in Canal Street, New York City. They depict people who are visually engaged with something outside the frame. These portraits were taken without consent to emphasize the absence of privacy in contemporary camera controlled societies. The sculpture installation has a camera pointed at sunglasses. The filming of the reflection in the sunglasses is shown on a television screen in the adjacent room. The sound interactive video shows the turning pages of a book about orchids. With the surrounding volume the video stream modifies and at times disappears.
