It’s Autumn. It’s Winter. The seasons blend together. Someone burns pastures. Almost nothing happens, only the passing of time. A time fragmented by the image.

A fascinated gaze upon the exuberance of the Argentine province of Corrientes wanders through the Esteros del Iberá and the coasts of Empedrado. In its passing, it deposits attention on the overflow of life that surrounds everything.

Dark Paradise: Humans in Galapagos
Paul Rosero Contreras |18′ 25″ |Ecuador 2019 | Video
As an element that appeals strongly to the imagination, an island may be the incarnation of anti-nationalist dreams, primitive inspirations, or the desire for isolation. Following their discovery in 1535, the Galapagos Islands remained largely uninhabited until 1832, when they were annexed to Ecuador. Contreras’s project investigates the first settlements in the archipelago as a paradigmatic social experiment. Dark Paradise brings together historical archeology and mythological narrative to develop a metaphor about resilient underwater species and their seemingly paradisiacal appearance.
