Video stills of the work Untitled-Red, by João Leonardo, 2003

Untitled (red)

DV-video Pal, 4:3, color, sound, 3:30 min

A frozen cube of red wine melts to reveal a secret inside. The abstract and romantic nature of this piece is enhance by the 
classical musical soundtrack used: Bach´s Cantata BWV12 (Weeping, Wailing,, Grieving, Fearing), 1714. Using time manipulation, 
the work remains ambiguous, something between pathetic and the sublime.
