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.
El film que sale del proyector se dirige hasta la estructura motorizada que está instalada frente a él. Allí se despliega en el espacio para constituir la superficie sobre la que se proyectan las mismas imágenes que contiene el film: registros de represiones policiales en diferentes protestas.
The film that comes out of the projector is directed to the motorized structure that is installed in front of it. The film unfolds in to the space to became the same surface on which the images contained in the film are projected: records of police repressions in different demostrations.
