"Peoria" - Film by Coralie Maurin
"Soulution IV s3" - Perfomance by Natalia Villanueva Linares
Film by the Artist Coralie Maurin:
"The action takes place in the city of Peoria, the United States (Illinois) - built on what was once the territory of the Indian tribe Piwarea - in the Hale Memorial Church meant to be renovated and turned into an art center. As indicated by the artist Natalia Villanueva, a group of women sewing large pieces of plastic sheeting.
The film focuses on the skill of the seamstresses gestures and movements of the colored material which has the texture of the dream. However, the shape and the destination of the final work are not revealed.
A silent song is inserted into the gaps of the film. This is a song written on the model of not sacred songs invented within the Native American communities in the domestic task, such as embroidery.
The movie develops the theme of collective artistic gesture and its profound meaning for the individual, for the community he is associated with and finally for us, spectators of this action."
