About Irene Cruz's Video Art: 

 

Irene Cruz started her professional career as a photographer, later adding the medium of video to her artistic repertoire. her video artworks discover the realm of film, literally seen as moving images. they oscillate between the boundaries of minimalistic “one-action” narratives and photographic snapshots, fixed in time and space. in the harmonic universe of Cruz’ works there are relations of tender treatment and therapeutic cure which establish the grid of intimate connections between the cultural and natural aspects of life. these ascetic visual worlds seem to be self-sufficient; they deliver the self-referential time-based structures of simultaneity in Bergson’s sense, which tend to juxtapose the viewer’s feeling of time. there is no representation of faces nor explicit identities in the video works – the environments visible are not inviting. the visual aesthetics can be labeled as “for private use only”, they force the viewer to fulfil the role of a voyeur. therefore every show is an „exceptional” one, revealing our economy of seeing in discourses of (bio)power, violance and surveillance.
