Tensiones documentales is a transdisciplinary, independent, self-managed and site-specific investigation that exercises the aesthetic remembrance of experiences of psychic pain through the intersection of visual, sound and movement strategies. The creative group is integrated with Cora Pérez Vergara, music theory student, performer and singer of the Big Band University of Chile, Lucas Núñez Saavedra, esthete, visual artist and member of the Circle of Students Living with HIV + (CEVVIH by its spanish acronym), Juan Diego Rivas Espinosa, theatrical designer, and Matías Marambio de la Fuente, historian, teacher of the Alberto Hurtado University and member of the editorial committee of La Raza Comómica.
The project had its first and only public exhibition in October 2018 at the Santiago Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC by its spanish acronym), through the format of performative installation. His exhibition was framed in the “Lado (In)visible” meeting organized by Nuri Gutés Miñano, Amílcar Borges and Luis Corvalán Correa, teachers from the Dance Department of the University of Chile. For this first occasion, Tensions documentary presented an exercise of a dialogue between four aesthetic memory strategies: the intervention of more than one hundred documents from the fields of health and education. An exercise in which Lucas, Matías and Juan Diego participated; a work of electroacoustic composition, whose authorship corresponds to Cora; one of zenith lighting of which Juan Diego was in charge; and one of somatic exploration, work for which I was responsible. This creation in motion was presented as my final work for the Political Violence, Memory and Cultural Production in Latin America Diploma Course.
For the Laguna Prize 2020 Art meeting we will present our project through the performance format, integrated to my moving body, the intervened documentation, and the sound composition of Cora Pérez in collaboration with Matías Mondaca and Joaquín Montecinos Ortíz. Our proposal is to subject this material to a recycling and updating process, so that the poetic psychic pain outlined so far is re-defined by questioning its context of realization and its critical-political role (Nelly Richard, 2009) regarding the systematic violation of fundamental rights. We think it is urgent to focus on a critical reflection regarding the emotional well-being of the LGBTTTIQCA + and + HIV population in our country.
