Concert by the dead for the living
Crashed cars, multichannel video and audio
2009
5 crashed cars, 2 videos 4:3, color, without audio
Audio stereo on 4 speakers
Different length

Four wrecked cars are placed in a public space, each of them has a speaker that reproduces a composition using vehicle sounds. In an extra car, two televisions show a video of the recycling of the cars (with the collaboration of Salvador Ricalde), and on the other hand, an action realized while installing the work, in which a professional cleaning squad washes and waxes the cars, as if performing an act of purification for these dead artifacts that will return to life through sound. A sarcastic expression about cars as cult objects in societies such as Mexico.
