Marcello Mercado
«Emptiness» («El Vacío»)
videoart, 14minutes, 1994

 

 

 

Das Verhältnis zwischen menschlichen Körpern, Macht und Religion.
«Religion, Medicine and Sport all exercise power over our bodies. 
Mercado attempts an analysis of
these regimes and their ultimate meeting point in death”
(13th World Wide Video Festival, Netherlands, 1995)
“This work visually meditates the relationship between bodies, power and religion”
(22nd Athens Int. Film+Video Festival. USA. 1995)

 

 

“Mercado , en particular, supera sus trabajos previos cruzando imágenes tomadas en una morgue
y el sermón histérico de un pastor, con un crudo texto propio, para lograr un impácto que resulta
seco, directo, y genuinamente perturbador.”
(Fernando Martín Peña, Las cartas sobre la mesa. Revista Film, page 54. Buenos Aires, Oct-Nov 1994)
“El Vacío choca mas não apenas pelas imagens fortes e pouco frequentemente
visíveis nas telas; ele choca principalmente pela força com que consegue colocar
a fragilidade do humano. Nesse sentido é o trabalho mais francamente anti-romantico
e anti-antropocêntrico que já vi”
(Arlindo Machado, October 1994)

 

 

 


“Mercado stellt eine Parabel über den Einfluß von Religion, 
Medizin und Sport auf unseren Geist
und Körper vor. Eine Analyse dieser drei “Regimes” und deren ultimatives 
Aufeinandertreffen im Tod”
(Landes Galerie. Reihevideokunst. Videopolitik.
LandesMuseum Francisco-Calorinum. Linz. 1995) [+]
