Memories of Oblivion

Memories of Oblivion is a video-souvenir that was created after the visit of a post-human landscape: the abandoned city of Epecuén, in Buenos Aires province, Argentina. The film portrays the experience of flooding, abandonment and putrefaction that began in 1985 and persisted for years in the city of Villa Epecuén, which has been inhabited for a long time with the unstoppable, unpostponable and uncontrollable factor of life: the mushrooms, microorganisms and the different forms of non-human existence that surround the location. This video of unwanted memories, with its album of postcards from neglect, is a historical and fictional record of a past truly redeemed by non-human life in collaboration with waste, debris, and spontaneous ecosystems at the end of time, within an habitat of destruction and the impossibility of human inhabitability.
