La huella | 2012, video

La huella (the footstep) features a collection of disturbing photographs, associated in a dreamlike sequence that underscores the fictional aspect inherent to memory. Produced during the conflict that took place in Peru between 1980 and 2000, the pictures were gathered by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which investigated the civil war in the country. The piece explores the marks that the armed conflict left on the Peruvian population: silenced, at times invisible, but indelible traces.
