BODYSNATCHER

by Benjamin RAMÍREZ PÉREZ
2015 / Video / color / sound / 1S / 17' 30

The film works with newly-created 16mm film as well as with found footage from Barbara Loden‘s film Wanda (1970), conflating fragments from the film itself and the new material into an abstract narrative. Objects, props and surfaces from the film were recreated, visually isolated and refilmed, taking on a sculptural and artificial notion.
In a kind of vacuum, an abstract and associative narration about emptiness, failure, and identity construction in relation to the body slowly unfolds. A sort of science fiction remake of Wanda emerges - a layer of meaning that lies behind the film‘s plot and surface is imagined and constructed, positioning disparate elements in relation to each other and forging enigmatic connections between them.
