présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 22


According to one of the stories of the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi, the great Taoist thinker who one day fell asleep and dreamt that he was a butterfly. When he woke up, he did not know whether he was really a man who had dreamed that he was a butterfly or whether he was a butterfly who now dreamed that he was a man. How do you determine what reality is?

Felipe Esparza

Felipe Esparza’s work creates dynamic links and tensions between cinema, the visual arts and video creation. His projects display a marked interest in social content and an exploration of themes such as nature, non-verbal communication, the sacred, its symbolic derivatives and the relationship between image and body and image and truth. He tackles the complex relationship of these themes through visual narratives in which contemporary visual imagination cohabits with archives and local and universal cultural codes, creating metalingual pieces.
