El peso de la cenizas, 2018
Site-specific video installation. 10 videos.

The weight of the ashes is a video project made the night of the « Cremà » in Valencia during the popular festival of the Fallas. The city burns during the night of March 19. The more than 700 bonfires inflame the different sculptures created throughout the year by the associations of residents of the citybringing many visitors from all over the world. How much energy is released from the faults? How much does their ashes weigh?

Could the waste of energy in the process of transforming matter be a premonitory image, an allegory of a collapse or an agony of our world ?
