GCAC inaugurates its new Video Project Space with the single channel video and sound work Polaris, by Cuban artist collective Los Carpinteros.
Polaris describes the voyage of a musician who carries his drums through the Pyrenees. Shot in a real setting, it is essentially a sound piece that explores great areas of silence and noise, where the notion of pilgrimage takes on a central role as an abstract and personal ritual.
