TOWARDS A UTOPIAN ARCHEOLOGY - VIDEO-ART AND/IN THE CARIBBEAN - BERLIN 2010

Moving-image, decolonization, and continuities in Haiti, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic
by Alanna Lockward

Maya Derin, Aixa Requena, Adler Guerrier, Monica Ferreras, Alette Simmons-Jimenez, Alejandro QuinterosRaphael Montanez, Xavier Cambre, Jean Louis Jorge, David Perez, Kamadavis, Pascal Meccariello, Osvaldo Budet, Mafrta Mable Perez, Quintin Rivera Toro, Beatriz Santiago Munoz, Allora y Calzadilla, Wanda Raimundi Ortiz, Ella Alba, Nicolas Dumit Estevez, Scherezade, Quisqueya Henriquez, Teresa Maria Diaz Neiro

Video-Art and/in the Caribbean

Revolution Evolution (2003) by ‘Dominican’ video-art and gender discourses pioneer, Alette Simmons-Jiménez, codifies a new vision of Nature´s performative talents. She classifies Nature´s energy through its different manifestations by combining found footage and original material. Classic tilt-down shots of Hollywood 30´s choreographies, where circular ensembles display precision and glamor, dissolve into a collage of twirls alluding to the similarities between human existence and the forces of gravity. The appropriation of found-footage carries the same notion of belonging to the hegemonic culture. There is no Otherness distance with the images. Alette Simmons-Jiménez won, in 1992, one of the prizes of the XVIII Bienal Nacional de Artes Visuales with the first video-art installation ever realized in the Dominican Republic.
