El Paraíso de los creyentes, whose edition includes the original work in DVD format, is the latest project by Alberto García-Alix, in which he reflects on the value of the image and the word.
A selection of sixty-eight photographs (portraits, self-portraits, architectures and landscapes) are accompanied by the texts that constitute the complete script of this audiovisual work.
Text and image weave different narrative threads through which it is not possible to elucidate “whether what García-Alix says is what he sees, or whether what he sees is what he is silent about” and compose a personal story, confronting absence and presence, reality and representation, in which the artist portrays and self-portraits himself, while at the same time delving, through an exercise in narrative appropriation, into the literary universe of Céline and Conrad.
