Hugo Alonso is an artist working in Salamanca (Spain). His training as a painter lurks behind his audiovisual creative work, which stands out for its devilish editing influenced by film-makers like Chris Cunningham and musicians on the electronic scene like Aphex Twin.
In recent years his work has leaned towards multidisciplinary dialogues with the history of film. This music video is conceived as a remake of the film Peeping Tom (Michael Powell, 1960) condensed into less than three minutes. What at first looks like a striptease in a sordid domestic setting gives way to a menacing relationship of submission, which thanks to the magic of the editing and the stop-motion technique turns into a psychedelic nightmare in which the spectator takes the final decision over the fate of the characters. The soundtrack is also by the artist.
Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
