Antoni Muntadas

[ work offline ]

Guadiana, together with Dérive Veneziane and Finisterre, make up a trilogy of videos that describe actions linked to displacement. In the case of Guadiana, a work produced by the MEIAC, Muntadas takes a journey along the river using images taken from Google Maps.

What appears to be an enigmatic visual journey, however, becomes a profound analysis of notions such as territorialization and deterritorialization, drift and control, as we move through a landscape traversed by flows, accumulations, appearances and disappearances.

The use of satellite images, and the corresponding shift from the horizontal landscape to the zenithal landscape, increases this tension between the visual and the analytical, between map and territory, between nature and code.
