Available for 48 hours

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

Ignacio Pardo is one of the pioneers of video art in Galicia and in Spain, utilizing digital animation in work revolving around the classic themes of Eros and Thanatos. Frequently recurring motifs include decay, suffering, and pain, as well as sexuality as a natural element in an ongoing life cycle, and his films display a humor that reflects an acceptance of this cycle and an ability to find joy in living. The short works screened include Videoviolín, Parpadeo, Triángulo, Corpore insepulto, Ninfografía, Carne viva, Ojo de pez, Ventanas de noche, La tentación del caracol vive arriba, and Moscas.

1985-2004; Spanish with English subtitles; 34 minutes; not rated.

In September, thanks to a collaboration with Intersección: Festival de Arte Audiovisual Contemporánea da Coruña, Instituto Cervantes presents the film cycle Videocreación en Galicia, una cartografía. The festival presents works created at the intersection between contemporary art and avant-garde cinema, and the films chosen for screening this month demonstrate the artists’ will to overcome or reinvent the limits of audiovisual language.
