The Flickering Darkness (Revisited)
Juan delGado's The Flickering Darkness (Revisited) is a video installation filmed at the Corabastos market in Bogotá. The market is the largest of its kind in Latin America.
Produced during a three-month residency in the city in 2009 and re-edited for this exhibition, the project explores the journey that produce sold at the market takes, from its arrival before dawn until it is consumed.
Reflecting on the idea of belonging, on the need we all have for positioning, for locating ourselves in an environment, it creates sense out of the city's chaos and order, while inviting wider reflections on society's strata and how they fit together.
