André Retes & Francisco Belarmino
An experimental video work by the artists Francisco Belarmino and André Retes that presents an abrupt dislocation of the traditional chroma key element used by and hidden in TV and cinema studios. The work extracts and displays this element not only in its material aspect but also in its conceptualization. In other words, the utilization of the chroma key not as a fabric destined to disappear, but has a resource captured by the hostile conditions of space and the actions of the artists. Through a forced attempt, the fabric slowly starts to draw a green line across the plane in order to demark the horizon in the landscape. What should be understood as plane in the audio-visual and pictorial languages? What does ‘horizon’ mean in a desert or hilly landscape, a space devoid of that referential line that usually is drawn by the conjunction of sea and the sky? This work investigates this ambiguous place or territory in the audio-visual language, but is also interested in this land, half dead half live, lacking a modern project (Thinking about the horizon as an analogy of that objective that contemporary societies tries to embrace).
