Edurne Rubio’s research has always been related to the individual or collective perception of time and space. Interested in contexts that make perception a given variable and mutant, forgotten or archived, she seeks to associate or contrast ways of perceiving reality with the aim of creating a second composed reality. In recent years, her work has got closer to documentary and anthropology, using interviews, archive images and research on oral communication.
FRAME OF RESEARCH
Ambulantes is a project for a film about shopkeepers who instead of having having a shop in a building, have a mobile van, going from one place to another. Depopulation in rural areas in Spain has continued to increase since the 50s. The villages are inhabited by elderly people or completely empty. In this context, the contemporary huckster produces in the quiet villages a short event, bringing shared space and time, live.
