Andrés Denegri approaches the visual arts combining film, video, installations and photography. His projects generate dialogues between different formats, addressing them poetically and conceptually, creating tension in the classic uses of audiovisual technologies. Vintage film projectors are the protagonists of many of Denegri’s installations: from portable family devices to powerful industrial machines are combined in the production of kinetic objects where celluloid leaves the projector and travels through the space transited by the viewer.
Clamor es una gran instalación donde se repite tres veces la misma dupla de películas (La bandera argentina y Obreros saliendo de la fábrica) en tres formatos cinematográficos diferentes (Super 8, 16mm y 35mm). La tira de película que sale de cada proyector recorre todo el espacio de la sala.
Clamor is a large-format installation where the same duo of films (The Argentine flag and Workers leaving the factory) is repeated three times in three different film formats (Super 8, 16mm and 35mm). The film strip that comes out of each projector runs throughout the entire space of the room.
