Montevideo Cylinder building was used with multipurpose along half a century: from a market to a sport place (for the Basketball World Cup 1967), even a detention camp for political prisoners during last dictatorship (1973-1984). My generation lived this dark period and always saw the Cyilnder as cursed.
Collapse is a triptych screen film installation that shows a series of events from the building of the Cylinder in 1954 to its implosion in 2014. These scenes are rhythmical thanks to two frames associated in a subjective unity. Images are overlap. The layers expand and show photos, found-footage, orphan archives, a personal archaeology that recovers, in its heterogeneity, several and different aspects of a single fact.
This triptych is in itself archive footage, a private register of a public event that is transformed and becomes public again, in a different way.
Social imaginary collapses and the spectator will be a historical witness.
