They became ill and their pages were left blank

2022,  16 min, video, color

In this new project, R Yun Matea blends archival, biographical and ecological records from Mexico’s Oaxaca region. Pulling from index, testimony and cinematic forms, she truncates histories of disease and accounts of ancient tree life and agricultural practice. Matea’s multimodal research and field work converge as punctuated visual forms cut into view in this two-channel video installation.
