Still of 'La mano que trina', María Cañas

Eight pieces of the catalogue of the video art distributor HAMACA, selected in an open call, made up our show, that will take place in LABoral Centro de Arte from November 4, 2015 to February 28,  2016.

The jury has also selected María Cañas as the winner of the prize ficxLAB, that consists of a production grant at the production centre of LABoral to create an audiovisual work that will be showcased during the next Gijon Film Festival.

These pieces reflect upon the specificities of the audiovisual medium, through topics like the conversion to digital or, the aesthetic and narrative transformations resulting from the use of certain technological devices.

The ambiguous reference to the handy quote by Marshall McLuhan (the medium is the message) is a clear positioning opposed to the faith on progress of the ideologist of the global village and founder of the theory of the electronic communication. Therefore, these videos feature some nostalgia for the physical processes, choosing the hybrid media for creation where technology and ways of doing result in a confusion between media and goals.
