1+1. Reflexión en lo íntimo.
Instalación audiovisual. 200 x 200 x 250 cm.
1+1. Reflexión en lo íntimo ("1+1. Intimate reflection") tries to raise the matter of couple relationships. Its starting point is a theoretical research which leads to an audiovisual installation. It gives rise to the necessity for questioning our social habits, for giving answers to questions like: What are couple relationships nowadays? How and why do they play an important part in our present society? Does equality really exist within current couple relationships? How much space does each member of the couple have in a relationship of two? I would like to stress that this research was only based upon young, European and heterosexual couple relationships.
After this research, the project aims to give visual answers to the concepts learnt during the study. How? By means of an audiovisual installation that consists of 3 different screenings. We see a man on the left side, a woman on the right side and an empty space in which both the man and the woman can enter or leave whenever they want.
The project’s intention is to metaphorically connect the behaviour of the characters in the video with the behaviour from any young, European and heterosexual couple. In this way, the character’s movements, their situation on the space, the relationship that exists between their bodies... all these aspects want to answer and capture our own behaviour when we live as a couple.
