archeology of memory
For a complete description of this project visit the page: archeologyofmemory.org
“villa grimaldi: archeology of memory in three cantos” is an art-piece that includes: a musical suite, a book and a documentary film and a multimedia installation created by quique cruz.
The work gathers the art and the experiences of six artists who were detained in one of the most infamous torture centers during the Chilean military dictatorship of Pinochet: Villa Grimaldi.
For four years, quique cruz interviewed, photographed and filmed a group of artists–poets, painters, writers, playwrights, musicians– who have created a narrative in which they explore the contradictions of terror and aesthetics, the notion of pain and beauty and how to convert darkness into light.
