THE ECHO IMAGES
Cinema exists beyond the movie theaters, it has infinite forms. Lacuesta will exhibit some of his installations, exhibitions and interactive concerts—all works that he still considers to be films; however, devised in relation to the space, inviting the spectator to move, act and be the final editor. As Judith Revault d'Allones, curator of Lacuesta's retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, wrote "The unfolding and duality are at the centre of Isaki Lacuesta's creation. (...) Seeing and reviewing, from different perspectives. More than a method, a policy is drawn, and the films unfold". The images also make echoes.
Isaki Lacuesta (1975, Girona) has written and directed nine feature films, the last of which Entre dos aguas won him his second Concha de Oro at the San Sebastian Festival. It was awarded for best film and best actor at the Mar del Plata Film Festival, as well as seven Gaudí awards, including best non-Catalan language film and best director. His films have been screened at festivals all over the world and in artistic centers such as MoMA, the Lincoln Center, and Anthology Film Archives, as well as the Centre de Cultura Contemporània of Barcelona. Also, other centres such as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the National Gallery in Washington have dedicated complete retrospectives to his work.
