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.

The Golden Horn

The Golden Horn

When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.
