víctor vázquez: requiem for/by a culture

requiem for/by a culture 2003
hay, mirrored wall, videos, soil, birds
installation exhibited at the museum of contemporary art of puerto rico

"Requiem for/by a culture" | "Requiem por/para una cultura", 2003

Three monitors in a cross on a floor covered in fresh hay, display "Santa sangre", "Cirugía Cultura" and "Por donde se fue el camino". The scenes of the intercut videos— a domestic interior dripping with blood, a gory avian autopsy in a sterile operating room, a woman’s confessional monologue as she appears to descend into madness.

"Por donde se fue el camino" / "Where did the path go?"
