potentionality of an incident Information

video, 2017

The point of departure for the project was based on FBI instructional films from the sixties on how to use firearms.


The video work portrays the operating principles as well as instructions for using the Glock 17 model, 9×19 caliber. The presentation is performed by a former Special Services officer.
The fragments of the instructional video emphasize the subtlety of the relationship the body maintains with a manipulated object. The slow movements of the hand, which gently strokes the body of the weapon, showcasing individual points, contrasts with the knowledge we have of the object’s purpose. Dissonance is produced in this tenderness and certainty of movement towards the object, the tension between the choreography and the potentiality of firing/using the tool according to its application.
