MHT (Monkey Honky Town). 2000

Digital video. 28 minutes, color, stereo. New York, 2000

Produced by Sala Montcada, La Caixa de Pensiones, Barcelona.

The year 2001 coincided with the Space Odyssey of Stanley Kubrick. Arthur Clark, co-scriptwriter and a science fiction writer, described in a book the symbologies created in the film in relation to the social, political and religious moment. The pictorial-dramatic combination of these elements permitted the creation of the reframings of a 17th century still life: bones, books, flag, weapons, chance… and the psychotropic gaze from the 1960s, submerging us in a journey to the vanities of the human being.
