Inercia, 2012

Carlos Irijalba (Spain, 1979). Video. Ed. 2/5. 3’44’’

Inercia, a project presented at the ARCOmadrid art fair in 2012, explores how reality is constructed through light. The video work was recorded in a number of roads and forests in Navarre, the Basque Country and Cantabria. Addressing this construction of reality, Inercia begins with some scenes remitting to the transit of light from one location to another. In Inercia, the route is a place and the vector imposes itself on the object. Then the present tends to disappear in continuous motion, and what happens is in fact its non-presence. Over the four-minute duration, the work responds to the rhythm, visual axes and other conventions of narrative that we use to assimilate the entire audio-visual spectrum. Here a specific accident takes place between the fragile laws of narration and the sophistication of what is being staged, confronted with the inescapable physical connotations of the gravity, the weight or the volume of the elements at its service.
