ENES

This work is a Europe road journey in 2002, a voice narrative installation in four language alternating with photographs, train tickets, slides, journals, notes, postcards, maps and an amulet. The memories of the artist is like surface roots traveling carefree in all directions, adapting to circumstances that the hazard trace their path.

Again and again we hear a litany, the echo of his memories distended in 5 soundscapes, alternating with the strong anecdotal load of photographs, postcards and even a travel amulet, operating all together as dendrites where flows his memory. Next to him we have a diffuse and dissected journey experience, metaphor of continuous personal-social movement where true and false memories circulate legitimized in this multidisciplinary proposal. Overlapping frequencies and small stories in which Marco interprets the role of the exiled, tourists and curious urban.

Viaje a Dedo Sin Destino Urbano es un recorrido por la intrincada urdimbre que conforma la memoria del viaje que emprende Marco Montiel-Soto en el año 2002. Una brillante propuesta que nos conduce por los recuerdos del artista como raíces superficiales que avanzan despreocupadas viajando en todas direcciones, adaptándose a circunstancias que el azar traza a su paso.

Una y otra vez escuchamos como una letanía, el eco de sus recuerdos distendidos en 5 paisajes sonoros, alternando con la densa carga anecdótica de fotografías, postales e incluso un amuleto de viaje, que operan como dendritas por las que fluye su recuerdo. Junto a él experimentamos una travesía difusa y diseccionada, metáfora del móvil continuo personal-social por donde circulan verdaderos y falsos recuerdos legitimados en esta propuesta multidisciplinar. Frecuencias superpuestas y pequeños relatos en los que Marco interpreta el rol del exiliado, el turista y el curioso urbano.
