“anatomy, study of the wall”
Director: Diana Larrea
Film: This film documents the physical process and the research behind “Anatomy, Study of the Wall”. The latest project of artist Nathalie Alfonso, whose work investigates the economics and impact of manual labor, physical endurance, and notions of impermanence through drawing, installation, and video.
This site-specific drawing is her most extensive to date. Over the course of three weeks, she created a mural-size drawing using charcoal and graphite to create an illusionistic rendering of the wall’s interior structural beams and used graphite to make expressionistic abstractions in squares inset across the surface. This labor-intensive work will be painted over at the conclusion of the exhibition and vanish from sight.
Bio: Diana is a Peruvian filmmaker and documentary photographer based in Miami and Cusco. “Monarcas” is her directorial debut after working as an award-winning editor for many years. She aims to poetically portray and empower the immigrant experience.
