HD video, 13:10 min, film still © Eli Cortiñas

Eli Cortiñas (* 1979 in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria) uses found material from films, YouTube videos, advertisements, animations, and image archives in her video works, which she reproduces, rhythmises, and sets to music. In the visually striking video essay "Walls Have Feelings" (2019) she deals with the concepts of work and value creation, among other things. Cortiñas creates a dystopian picture of our present that links historical, political, and aesthetic aspects. The artist questions architecture as a manifestation and instrument of political power as well as the role of supposedly innocent objects and interiors in their function as silent witnesses, protectors, and amplifiers of power.
