Elkin Calderón | Thermopylae Floating: National Anthem (video still) | 2010 | Video HDV 4 min, aprox.
Opening and Closing: Wednesday, 8 September 2010 - 7:30pm to Friday, 8 October 2010 - 6:00pm

The five videos that make up the work Thermopylae Floating (2010), are the result of a trip to the river Magdalena and coastal villages in the same year as the bicentennial celebrations of Independence. The five videos portray our forgotten waterway (which was vital at the time of independence) and together show a critical, cloudy, muddy, and polluted view of our current river. Thermopylae Floating speaks of jobs, paradoxes, contrasts and collisions that occur along the river and shows us the layers or levels, and what we think is the celebration of our Independence.
