Cementerio Santa Isabel I (En la Pampa)

Jordi Colomer

This photograph were produced during the shooting of En la Pampa (video, 2008). With this project the artist is questioning: Can we inhabit the desert? Can we inhabit a space with fiction? Thus, Colomer invited a man and a woman that didn’t know each other and that were not actors to live certain situations in the Atacama Desert, in the north of Chile. The desert became a vast stage with multiple sets. Maria and Mateo’s main asset was to succeed in forgetting the camera and to improvise the dialogues according to the action, for example, to wash a car near an abandoned cemetery.
