Antes todo esto era campo

10th September – 20th November 2021
Screening program curated by Lejos lejos

Intersticio is pleased to present Antes todo esto era campo a series of screenings programmed by the independent producer Lejos lejos. The cycle begins with Scene I. Verás un árbol a mitad del camino, including the works of Adrián Balseca, Paz Encina and Alberto Martín Menacho. It continues with Scene II. Dios es mi amigo este barrio es mi novio, with works by Julieta Gil & Sofia Acosta, Inês Lima and Francis Alÿs.

Antes todo esto era campo is an audiovisual program composed of two scenes in which there are different ways of relating to the environment both rural and urban through memory. The first scene occurred between 10th September and 17th October; the second, between 28th October and 20th November, both in the lower room of Intersticio.

The works presented in the cycle allow us to experience other people’s memories, making them our own, thus opening up possibilities for understanding others. The memory is encrypted in the environment: trees and rivers contain childhood memories, mountains and holm oaks tell legends and dogs keep ancestral fears.

The agency and plant sensitivity were present in the three films that coexisted in the first scene of the cycle: Verás un árbol a mitad del camino. To these memories, in the second scene, Dios es mi amigo este barrio es mi novio, they add the domestic space and the city as scenarios for resistance to the idea of a unique way to observe and live them.
