The word sceneries means both a place where a situation or action takes place and a theatre stage area.

In a series of 360o movements, three different videos show clandestine, forbidden or isolated landscapes. Each scene has been staged and the situations has been built up from scratch.

The images allude to the recent history of Lima, Peru, and it comes from the intersection of political and biographical images. The timeless and suspended landscapes suggest national memory as a silent and unresolved issue.
