In the video Drum Solo [Solo de Tambor] (2000; 19 min) Liliana Porter brings to life a cast of recurrent toy-like characters that have appeared in her artworks over the years. Through straight-forward animation and accompanied by a music score by Sylvia Meyer, vintage figurines perform in humorous, absurd, and sometimes moving vignettes. Porter’s installation Labor forzada [Forced Labor] (2005) will also be on view, featuring a tiny worker shoveling an impossibly large pile of mulch, a light-hearted but incisive comment about labor and social injustice.
