MAKING OF

Video, 1’20", 2007

In the video Making of, set in the Parisian underground, we hear Iván Argote’s voice directing people as if they were actors in a film set. The video starts when the subway doors close and ends at the next stop, when the doors open. The reaction of the passengers is oddly limited to a wary look, similarly to the video I just want to give you money shot the same year. Here, as in other works, the artist questions the limit between reality and fiction, the credibility of image and the way we related to others.
