'Kommendes Wort' project, supported and presented by ArteBA(2014), deploys itself around a video piece, a series of photographs and a sound collaboration.
For Les Rencontres Internationales, we would like to propose the video, which act independently. 'Kommendes Wort' (2014, 8'15'') is video animation by Daniela Huerta of eighty-five xerox drawings. The image used is always revolving to the same picture of an emigrant coming from Honduras who is about to take the train ‘La Bestia’ better known as 'The Death Train' (a rail train used by the emigrants to cross Mexico and illegally enter the United States).
Daniela Huerta repeatedly used this low-fi pixelated image, making eighty-five variations out of it, using the ink from the photocopy as a drawing technique. By this mean, Huerta consequently destroys each image by altering the individuality of it, questioning the notion of identity by deforming the face over and over again.
The sound track is the outcome of a collaboration with Huerta- and her collected audio material on site, and 12 electronic music producers twelve electronic music producers (Magda, Ryan Crosson, Konrad Black,Damián Schwartz,Natalia Escobar, Nyma,Pier Bucci,Onirik, Javier Zugarramurdi, Hamid, F Lijt).
Daniela Huertaʼs work tends to explore and reveal the poetry of ordinary things. She is interested in the dialogue which is created between objects and the space around them.
The process becomes a major part of her work. It aims to undress and reflect upon daily life objects or simple natural phenomenons. Her practice incorporates a wide range of media, including installation works, drawings, sculptures, photography, and video.
Daniela Huerta was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico in 1982 and currently lives and works in Berlin.

Morgan Beringer is an American video artist based in London, UK. Having spent his school days gaining degrees in both philosophy and art he found his concern with the unexplored conceptual space between still/moving image. The expressive and experimental possibilities therein inspired an ongoing opus of 64 abstract films that continue to expand his distinct perspective upon the medium. Morgan’s work has featured at galleries, festivals, and events across the globe in both commercial and artistic contexts.
