Nelson Ramirez de Arellano Conde: Cuban Time
FREE ENTRY, ART, FILM & DIGITAL CULTURE
• Days with event
Opening: Thu, Nov 28, 19:00
Cuban Time, within a combination of photographs and videos intends to explore a broad spectrum of the relationships that Cuban people have with time, in an interaction of two different projects: “Hotel Habana” focuses on the possibility to see the same place in different periods, as superimposed layers, as if time would be a transparent layer that we could see through. The artist calls our attention on how we understand the past, the present, and how we imagine or fear the future. The second project “Time Traveller Loop” focuses on the distortion of the perception of theof Havana, in a mesmerizing slow-motion composition that doesn‘t let us know if time goes forward or backwards.
