Agustina Isidori will present Don Federico and Sola at the 2018 Ars Electronica Campus Exhibition in Linz, Austria.

Don Federico is an experimental video installation that juxtaposes YouTube footage of kids playing a hands game and an actual case of feminicide. It creates an unsettling dialogue that reflects on the naturalization of gender-based violence.
“Don Federico killed his wife,
he chopped her in little pieces
and put her in a frying pan,
people walking by,
smelled something stinky,
it was Don Federico’s wife,
dancing cha cha cha”

SOLA is a video game that embodies the climate of tension, discomfort and fear that can be experienced while walking alone at night in cities where gender-based violence is embedded in everyday life. SOLA challenges the usual understanding of games as a source for entertainment. It builds on the concept of play to explore a video game as an instrument for conceptual thinking and a tool to work through social issues.
