Sebastian Diaz Morales (b. 1975) has an impressive oeuvre of video and installations to his name, of which two short works have previously been seen in Rotterdam. The Way Between Two Points sketches how the past and the future overlap in this portrait of a chaotic region affected by industrialisation. A man roams apparently without aim through an anonymous Argentine city, wedged between ocean, desert and oil industry. His decision to steal a car looks unmotivated, but takes the story to the endless, wild Patagonian plains. Even in this void ravaged by unrelenting winds, we can find rough remains of civilisation all over the place: derelict houses, gleaming puddles of oil and not nodding donkey pumps. Diaz Morales uses a thoughtful tempo, long shots of the harsh landscape, the sound of the wind, crunching pebbles and the occasional fragment of music to tell the story of the transformation caused by oil exploration.
