Tania / Ich
SANTIAGO ECHEVERRY Title: TANIA ICH
Year: 1989
Duration: 7'34"
Type: Video Art

My first experimental video created with a Video 8 camera and a Betamax VCR.

A diptych where I explore the contrasts of my bourgeois home in Bogota and the stroboscopic nature of video.

Tania was one of the maids in my house and I chased her to her room. The audio transitions from Bach to a religious radio station.

Ich is an autoscopy inspired by Gilles Charalambos, one of the pioneers of videoart in Colombia. The audio is generated by the saturation of the video whites on a cathod ray tube.
