Installation 1: Becoming Close. Closer

  • Becoming close. Closer.
  • An on-site installation made simply out of tape and paper. based on a false memory of my father. The viewer is exposed to a piece of writing inside on a structure made out of tape. The paper reads: Your name is Guillermo Ramirez you are 15 years old in Lima Peru, Close your eyes, count to ten, turn around quickly. Once the viewer turns a song plays. The song that plays is Lloraras ┬áby Los Pasteles Verdes. By reading the text and turning away from it to hear the song play the viewer is in the place of Guillermo Ramirez, signified by the structure, and are forced to put themselves in the place of a false memory one that also involves them as the creator of the memory itself.
