Spanish artist Antonio Ortuño, expresses himself through single-channel video, video installation, and video combined with art. These are the empathetic tools that help him better reflect circumstances that are otherwise hard to assimilate or understand, sometimes due to our own ignorance about ourselves, given the little interest we have in introspection or, simply, due to the fear of knowing how we actually are in our most intimate beings.

Ósculo Santo workshop (Jorge Clar, Daniel Lariño and Daniel A. Zapata) is dedicated to co-creation, bringing the mysterious into tangible realms via video, photography, performance and/or spoken/ written word.

Music by Unique Class Sounds.
