Through her writing practice and films, Angelica Marchi considers the status of language versus the materialisation of what it is not material. In an increasingly unequal world where a lot of people’s struggles in several countries become unseen, Marchi’s work will be hosted in Jesus Gomez’s Website for the time of twelve days, honouring the delicate matter of the subject.
 
This is a manifesto of an ongoing situation in the country of Venezuela, that has constantly been suffering from power shortages and blackouts for more than ten years.
 
Putting together Interrelating aspects of research, pieces of writings, and fragments of conversations had by her family during the blackouts, she addressed the notion of creating a ‘ritual’ when a blackout begins, using repetitions of a voiceover, as a symbol of the silenced struggles, coming out from an old tv.
