Throughout May and June 2020 Gasworks presents a second series of online screenings of artist films commissioned for our exhibitions programme over the last few years. Featuring works by Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Patricia Domínguez, and Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, each piece is available to stream on Gasworks’ website for two weeks and is accompanied by interviews with the artists, texts and reviews.
Santiago Muñoz’s films use a historical lens to explore the relationship between landscape, history and infrastructure in Puerto Rico, the artist’s home country. The video, La Cueva Negra (2013), investigates the transformation of a former archaeological site, whereas 16mm film Farmacopea (2013) looks at how the Puerto Rican landscape has been de-historicised by tourism and the service industry.
