TEA Tenerife Space of Arts is screening from Thursday 7 to Sunday 24, from 10:00 to 20.00 hours, in El Cuarto Oscuro a cycle of video art entitled "Ironías Pop en los vídeos de la COFF" (Pop Ironies in the COFF videos). This programme, curated by Emilio Ramal, includes two pieces by Carles Congost (Gerona, 1970) and Martín Sastre (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1976), works that share the same critical spirit about the role of the artist in society. Free admission.

  • "That’s My Impression!" (2001), an eight-minute piece by Carles Congost and Montevideo: The dark side of the Pop (2004), a 13-minute video by Martín Sastre, are the pieces that can be seen in El Cuarto Oscuro. Using in both cases a language that takes its inspiration from Pop aesthetics, Congost and Sastre—each in his own way—ironize about their own facets as artists and, therefore, about themselves.
  • On the other hand, "Montevideo: The dark side of the Pop" is a work for which Sastre received the First Prize for Young Artists awarded by the Community of Madrid at ARCO 2004. It is situated in a future in which Latin America is the dominant cultural power in the world.
