The performativity of experimental filmmaking involves questioning materiality and imagination. Experiment leaves room for error and puts sensation, content, chance and representation at the centre.

Every being has an ecosystem that is contained within a larger system around it. Performativity constitutes the political, physical, chemical, and sensorial, elements that revolve around the practice and constitute the system of reflection of each moving image work in this exhibit.

At a time when the imagination is in crisis, experimental film has the power to transgress the uniformity of the imagination. Science and art intertwine, transcending traditional practices of making and grounding the possibility of creating representations outside the human narrative structure.

The beings and processes represented in these works invite us to construct imaginaries of life outside the anthropocentric norm by appealing to the senses from unknown or illogical places. Their sonorities, textures and identity plays make Diálogos Cuerpo-Hábitat / Les dialogues Corps/hábitat a questioning ground of representation and existence.
