February 15th to 25th of February 2017

Opening February 15th, 6:00pm to 9:00 pm. Screening at 7:00pm

SCAN (Spanish Contemporary Art Network) is pleased to present a curated series of videos by artists Greta Alfaro, María Cañas and David Ferrando Giraut.

 David Ferrando Giraut weaves text onto image in an analysis of the absence and the fetishism of the proxy.

' Loss' contemplates absence and the supplanting of a life with images. A narrator’s voice examines a sense of longing, as embodied in relics of recording technology and geological souvenirs, filmed in lush and Noire black-and- white. Memories are reconstituted over the surface of objects which both recreate presence and at the same time underscore a central absence. Yet the object retains its autonomy and its position. The relationship between present and past is blurred in our gaze in the dark – fading in and out; the anthropomorphism of technology glows in the dark, haunting.
