POINTS OF PRESSURE TO TREAT A BODY WITHOUT MOVEMENT (2014)

Linking a fictional sequence with a happening, this video-work is a reflection about the current economic situation in Spain. The video begins with a Chinese doctor of the Tui Na massage working in his practice. While touching the bodies of his patients, he reflects upon his work and the current state of the society he lives in. Understanding the Spanish society as a sick body, which is suffering from the symptoms of unemployment, the sequence ends with his question to himself: can a body that does not work fall ill?

In the second part, the video shows the documentation of a happening. The doctor is now in front of the Government employment office, poetically treating the society, across the body of unemployed people.
