“The storm exhales through us and the bare branches (each and every one), so
that we can borrow its pure and permanent virtue. We wonder if the cities have
heard the simplicity of its story, despite its loneliness. However, they have not
been purged in the flow out the night stream. Now they crawl away. Perishable,
late and far, the earth does not argue. It has no arguments. In discord, hopefully,
we discover its answer, as refugees in the illusory trap of illusion.
For now, they say, the storm has passed.
But we do not believe it"
Even Silence is cause of storm is a film performance by Luis Macías & Adriana Vila Guevara. A display of analog projection devices with 35mm slides, 16mm film (made with hand processing, photochemical experiments, and optical printing frame by frame) combined with sound created by Alfredo Costa Monteiro, from field recordings and electro-acoustic devices in a single performance of visual and sound experimentation.
An exorbitant perceptual experience on the relation with nature: hypnotic subtle and violent.
Adriana Vila and Luis Macías are a duo of artists exploring film and its devices. Their expanded cinema performances using argentic/analog devises involve a high degree of improvisation, using structural composition and formal explorations, involving elements as light intensity, sonic vibrations, instability and phantasmagoria. They have been performing together since 2010, collaborating with experimental musicians, showing their work in alternative spaces and renowned festivals and art centers in the U.S, Europe and Latin America.
