Acciones sinuosas

Diego Del Pozo Barriuso


Acciones sinuosas proposes a narration that evidences the strategies of some social and political movements that have been forced to use disguise, concealment or change of identity in order to guarantee the effectiveness of their activism or simply to fight for their survival. These sequences are accompanied by a collection of drawing animations of small unconscious acts of concealment of an individual's face and personality. So that the video activates the very dynamics of concealment it reflects upon, it does so by proposing a game of multiple confrontations, not only by the double screen layout, but by the different narratives evidenced that confront us with different types of masks. Each of them operates from different spheres of power (patriarchal violence, heteronormativity, globalization, intolerance for other political ideas, the regulation of bodies by states...). There is also a dialogue of these spaces of power with another space of power, the one internalized by us as subjects, which is revealed in our unconscious gestures.
