Belchite – South Bronx: A Trans-Cultural and Trans-Historical Landscape

Francesc Torres

In this densely textured work, Torres constructs a multilayered metaphor that transcends culture, time and place. Ruins of the abandoned Spanish town of Belchite and archival footage of the Spanish Civil War are juxtaposed with the ruined buildings and icons of the contemporary urban landscape of the South Bronx. Shot in Spain and the U.S., this project is composed of a single-channel videotape, as well as a six channel video installation.
