Résistance - Tantale
an interactive multimedia installation
by Marcel.li Antunez Roca
At the forefront of the struggle for artistic freedom, this piece takes the form of a visual and interactive dialogue. The faces of visitors are captured in real time, absorbed into the work and integrated into a baroque, fantasmagorical visual environment projected inside the exhibition space. The computer-processed images put their subjects in dangerous fictional situations, involving them in a series of tableaux that are parables of all the various forms of censorship. Like the mythical figure of Tantalus, the viewer/actor endlessly repeats the same actions, never achieving his or her goal.
