Matinee / Matiné, 2009, is structured in a series of consecutive vignettes, some of them very brief. The characters, as in previous works, are inanimate objects, figurines, and adornments with an occasional appearance of a human hand. Within there are references to personalities and political figures who remain in the collective memory, like Che, JFK, Joan of Arc, and others.
The characters, when presented outside of their usual context, allow for a more subjective rapport for the viewer. Contrary associations and feelings coexist - the familiar and strange, the literal and metaphoric, comedy and tragedy. The music by Silvia Meyer is an essential element of the work, as it emphasizes important levels of awareness.
