Ingrid

work in progress (2003 - 2016)

Ingrid is one of the figures that populates the spaces DFS creates.
Some of her relates to the deceased B-movie actress Ingrid Rabel (Maria Teresa Gómez Gutierrez 1945 – 2002), some of her to the figures and fictions she performed and some of her to the fictitous extensions we added to all of that.
Ingrid is an exemplary character, an exemplary figure, an exemplary life for DFS. Born under the dictatorship of Franco, after the defeat in the Spanish Civil War, she had a relationship to Germany, assuming a german artist name and dying from cancer at the beginning of the 21st century. Addicted to slotmachines. Alcoholic. Unsuccessfull. She is like all of us.
The artist Celine Conderelli gave Ingrid her voice, the artist Sofia Lomba makes her alive for the camera.
Like in a Max Beckmann painting, Ingrid is a dense layering of tragedy, comedy and pathos, multifaceted, lumping incongruities together.
Through her we are trying to build spaces in which different bodies and narrations can live and exist together, to parttake in a dialogue among each other, to understand this world and imagine another one outside of it.
Some are dead, some absent, some fictitious and some living ones in love, connected by a silken string, inside an unknown body, inviting poetic desire, warm and soft, always dissolving, never locked, insisting to dust-bathe.
Small miracles, performed one by one.
De-formance, connecting fragments, not durable, glamorously insisting.
Every story is worth to be told and retold. It's crucial, necessary, beautiful, inspiring, magic and diamantic.
