La melancolía del turista/The Melancholy of the Tourist is a hall of mirrors held up by what remains of a sublimated landscape, that no longer exists or never did: a state where things dissolve in time, sometimes reviving through traces of memory and certain pockets of resistance. It comes from a search through various tourist spots, from which we have recovered instants and objects that speak of the rise and fall of this fantasy. But melancholy is also a mood of suspense that goes along with the exception, an active force driving us towards the desire to reinvent and reinvent ourselves in these lapses where inertia is shattered. https://temporada-alta.com/event/la-melancolia-del-turista/
