Travel memories are subjective, often romantic, and incomplete. Focusing solely on atmosphere, the travel diary Chiles en Nogada presents itself in abstract flickers. Every once in a while there is a flash of a concrete and almost cliché image of a classic tourist destination … The hypnotic static images domineer the screen with the filigree, sawing noise landscapes by Angélica Castelló, dieb13 and Burkhard Stangl. Once upon a time in Mexico.
