Blindness



Performance video, 08’00”

Venezuela, 2023.
Elena Victoria delicately moves her hands in a close-up shot, exploring the intricacies of the jasper stone, evoking the tactile experience of Braille readings for individuals with limited vision. As the film progresses, we encounter her in various angles, striking still poses that resemble a serene slumber in water. It's as if she is attempting to blend harmoniously with her surroundings, ultimately becoming one with the stostone itself—a transformation emphasized by her poignant voice-over narration, offering a poetic reflection.

Special thanks to BKM Hamburg and the Pemon Community of Santa Cruz de Mapaurí for their generous support.
