Accompaniment
Event documented on HD Video / 2’04” / 2012
The band creates a composition for a falling leaf. In the forest they look out for it and play it while it falls.
(Ecuador, 1980) insinuates in his work the existence of a territory where fact and fiction are exchangeable. Unexpected events occur there, the beat of drums synchronizes to the sweat of a person, the unrealized desire of a dead person is fulfilled, a cloud is physically capture in a marble container, or a horse looks at his own reflection.
Santillan received a Sculpture MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University – VCU (US), and attended residencies at the Delfina Foundation (UK), Jan van Eyck (NL), Fondazione Ratti (IT), Skowhegan (US), and Seven Below (US).
His work has been displayed at ‘Carrillo Gil’ Museum of Art (MX), Nest (NL), STUK (BE), Havana Biennial (CU), The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art – SECCA (US), Copperfield (UK), Marilia Razuk Gallery (BR), Oud-Rekem Castle (Belgium), Bonnefanten Museum (NL), Centro de Arte Contemporáneo – CAC (EC), Fundación ODEON (CO), Vogt Gallery (US), Bienal de Arte Paiz (GT), among other venues.
