El Cadáver

El Cadaver Exquisito:  Poster


















An “Exquisite Corpse” combines documentary, fiction and experimental film-making as it traverses the social and oneiric landscape of a region struggling between modernity and tradition. It explores ritual and performance from festivals to everyday life combining the real and the surreal, the fantastical and the banal, that which is vital and that which is purely entertainment. The reenactment of rituals within changing crowds and contexts illuminates the complex striving for understanding and for giving meaning to the small acts of everyday life. They also glimpse the need for release and catharsis. The myths, as torrid and exuberant as the geography, are often more concrete than reality and during the autopsy the corpse itself reveals something more repugnant than death, the submission of the living to it. This fantastical collective biography explores the psyche of an individual reflecting a multitude. It immerses into a dense mythological universe by narrating the life of a being in the process of unbeing, a character becoming a corpse.

-There are four elements that make up the foundation of my
memories and of my present, that is to say, of me. They gave birth to
and laced themselves through all the situations that mold my life.

of them arrived at the same time, while I was still a child: my
mother's garden and my father's library. I remember the first one
deeply, like a cloudy horizon. A forest of roses, with stems that
reached to the sky. And the second one, luminous and impenetrable. A
mysterious, long room with a small window full of light, which spelled
the garden outside of it. Time stood still in both places, and I grew up
without knowing that what we call life was outside.

The third one arrived all the sudden, at night, eyes without a face.
The icy bitch or the mother of the young peoples. The war began in 1980
and El Salvador exploded. The garden was a very tall wall crowned with
razor wire, and the luminous window of the library was a television
screen. The world was outside, waiting; the world was inside a luminous
box, howling.

fourth one was a result of the three previous ones; perhaps it was born
as a possibility to revive the past, to survive the present and to live
the future. The necessity of art. Anything was a good surface on which
to draw, to color, to paint and to write, and to decipher the world
deciphering me. A cloud, a wall, a body, a wing, a window, a halo.

reveal us to the others or they introduce a stranger with us. In the
case of the artist like the children only their sketches.

With esteem and pride I present to you what is mine.
