During the meeting, Lois Patiño will take a tour of her work, which adopts hybrid languages between video installation, experimental cinema and documentary. Works where the relationship between the human being and the landscape is a fundamental search. The contemplation of the landscape in intimacy and with estrangement, the densification of time in the gaze, the relationship between myth and memory with the landscape, are other perspectives from which to reflect on this place that surrounds us, that we inhabit and inhabit us. . Or as Castelao wrote regarding his native Galicia: "in a man entering the landscape and the landscape in man, the eternal life of Galicia was created".
