Alfaro’s video work has been recently screened at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Caixa Forum Madrid.

Artistic Statement:
We visualize the barren landscape of desire and will. Through the cracks of our consciousness, breaking the comfort of alienation, we catch, from time to time, glimpses of corruption, decline and decay that belong to our very selves. The phantoms appear, the dead change sides. Ours is a posthumous celebration.

Still from: Fall On Us, And Hide Us, 2011.
