A fly tries to find its way out of a transparent box that sits before an atmospheric landscape paint- ing. The insect’s moving body contrasts with the static scenery it travels through, whilst the demarcations of the plastic container are magnified by the bug’s desperate flutter. This video installation by Natalia García Clark, Conflicto Interno (Internal Conflict), encourages viewers to think about the spirit of captive animals. The Mexican artist works between mixed-media, performance, photography and sound to express philosophical and political ideas. She is increasingly focusing on narrative filmmaking, using humour to create connections.
