Worlds in Progress

Flapping memories of a lost gaze

Juliana Castro Duperly (CO)

Structured around the artist’s father’s last-written letters before his passing, this meditation on love and the natural Colombian world takes on a dream-like fantasy quality. Multiple phones with fractured screens flicker in time with the recorded and isolated audio of butterflies’ wings beating, creating a kind of naturally occurring morse code that beckons the audience into a life beyond death.


Juliana Castro Duperly works primarily in video, where live video performance and installations both act as poetry. She co-founded _ema, where she participates in the exploration of real-time video, CCTV, cybercultures and the error of the image and body.
