Control, video, 1997, 9’47’’
Txuspo Poyo sets a link between a radar airplane and three uniformed girls in different contexts. Firstly, the airplane suit in 1964 New York’s Universal World Fair and its Sphere: a steel hollowed world. Secondly, an inside domestic environment in which an iron simulates to take off and land to build relations between the parts of an airplane as a place to fix and adjusting. Finally, a third place where chimneys looks like giant chess pieces which evoke the Brooklyn’s Industrial heritage lost as a result of real estate speculation.
This work sets a crossing of images between historic remainders and production devices belonged to cinema, architecture, art and pre-technology to examine initiation places and the missing of cultural models.
