Mujer Desnuda

Antonio Perumanes

In this piece Perumanes uses video as a collage tool, by means of which he juxtaposes different, seemingly unconnected, fragments. The first scene features the naked body of a woman lying on the beach. The camera carefully goes over her whole body. Then, images of the streets of Sevilla are shown, together with images of animals. This emphasises the disconnection in the text heard in the voice over.

The third and last part of the video goes back to the image of the naked woman, but now, she is lying before a white background, where she becomes the object and subject of a pictorial exercise, that the camera follows. The last image is that of a nude female painting by Modigliani. The relationship between the different parts of the video are open to interpretation.
