The “Inside Insect” project follows Luis Buñuel’s footprints through various countries, generating a new value for found objects and archival documents such as letters, postcards, degraded photographs, maps and texts. The project plays with sign systems and photographic representations, deconstructing a preexisting narrative by deliberately mixing reality and fiction, that is, past and present myth and reality. It relates private images (Photo Albums and archive) that have been requested and documents and archive located in various sources and institutions with constructed images and simulations.
The project takes the form of a photographic essay comprised of photographs and archive materials, either altered or presented as such, establishing tensions, dialogues, overlapping relations, echoes or resonances of all these elements, shown as a cluster or constellation of materials.
