Sounds of death: Dialogues of emancipation (2013)
Title: Sounds of death
Author: Francisco Papas Fritas.
Technique: Drops of candles used for a year in the wakes performed outside San Miguel jail in a monthly commemoration of the families of the 81 dead were collected.
Description: Brothers Julian and Carlos were detained in different prison towers of San Miguel, where the windows were placed face to face by which they could have a conversation. Julian was supposed to be released the next day. Carlos spoke with his brother through the windows of the towers. That night a fight in the tower of Carlos began and that provoked a fire, and as this advanced, Julian heard as his brother asked for help when the flames began to take his. Julian allowed molds to be taken from his hands, which were reproduced in wax collected from candles on the wakes made by families outside San Miguel prison. The work was in a room where the hands seemed to be coming out of the windows with bars, a reproduction of those that existed in the prison of San Miguel. In the room you could hear the voice of Julian that narrated everything lived that fatal dawn.
