Claudio Pérez

LA HUELLA PERSISTENTE

Last year Claudio Pérez made the series EL MURO DE LA MEMORIA (Wall of remembrance, 2001), with images of political prisoners who disappeared during Pinochet's dictatorial regime. For the project LA HUELLA PERSISTENTE (Stubborn traces) he photographed the torture chambers, as the police left them after the fall of the dictatorial government. The bodies are gone, but countless other vestiges remind one of the dead, missing and tortured. Pérez recorded these traces as they remain behind on the doors, windows, walls and in hidden corners. They are the ineradicable marks of a black page in Chilean history - vestiges that the Chileans indeed still perceptibly carry with them.
