Mon Ross' documentary film is an intimate portrait of the late Paraguayan artist Feliciano Centurión, who developed his career in Buenos Aires during the 80s and 90s. The film serves as an affective exercise with valuable archival material, as Feliciano, his work and his time are revisited through the memories of his Paraguayan and Argentine friends.
This film is presented in the context of Americas Society’s exhibition “José Leonilson: Empty Man.” (on view through February 3, 2018). Although there are no testimonies that the artists met in person, their works as well as their charismatic personalities share a similar sensibility.
