El Susto

El Susto


After loosing his brother at the age of 3, Fernando was healed from the trauma in a shamanistic ritual. In this work, he appears while collecting items to reenact the same ritual. His performance in front of the camera is juxtaposed by the prerecorded interview, which is the main audio in this video. This juxtaposition creates a slit in the story as well as in his apparent fragile identity. As an extension to the video, the same collected items appear in print to be kept by the viewer.
