Quiero ... (I want ... )
2013, 00:50 minutes, Colour, Spanish with English subtitles
Quiero … (I want ... ) depicts installation art in the style of Trash Art from The Heidelberg Project in Detroit, Michigan and at the Electric Eclectic Festival (EEF) in Meaford, Ontario. The Heidelberg Project is a permanent art installation in an abandoned neighbourhood in Detroit in order to revitalize a depressed area, which fell victim to the economic downturn, representing the fall of the American dream. The EEF on the other hand, happens once a year and it is an event where experimental electronic musicians and installation artists meet and gather. These types of gatherings or places are part of grassroots movements of artists/activists/visionaries who provide alternative and underground ways to display art, bringing art onto the streets and outside of the context of formal art establishments and white gallery walls.
This video shows the aesthetic possibilities within an informal artistic context where creativity is measured by its experiential aspect rather than formal structure. It also reveals an aspect of informal economies where artists develop alternative ways to bring people together as well as affordable ways to exhibit their artform.
