“ILLEGAL contemplation” (00:03:18) by Rrose Present, Catalonia, 2017
Contemplation could be an act of sensitive rebellion.
An eye that unlearns laws from the gaze of a “colonizer”.
Yellow has become an illegal color in Catalonia because it is a symbol for the freedom of Catalan political prisoners.
The Spanish state can not prohibit the flowers of the mimosas from returning to bloom.
Like painting a time, with a playful montage of yellow sea caressed by the wind.
Homage to “Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws…” by Stan Brakhage and the Catalan Political Prisoners and Poems by my mother, Roser
