Carlos David Trujillo, an experimental filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist, delves into the intricate dynamics of identity in our digital age. As a first-generation American and immigrant from Caracas, Venezuela, Trujillo's work seamlessly melds humor, alter egos, and nostalgic elements, shedding light on the profound impact of reality TV and mobile content creation on the contemporary human experience.

His distinctive approach involves the meticulous documentation of various self-portraits presented through moving images, screenshots, screen recordings, films, memes, music videos, text-based works, performances, and site-specific installations. Having engaged in international residencies at the ARoS Museum in Denmark and Art Quarter Budapest in Hungary, Trujillo's artistic perspective has been enriched by diverse cultural influences. Notable among his solo exhibitions is "There Is Something Here" at Flux Factory in Queens, New York.

Trujillo's artistic endeavors have earned recognition through esteemed grants, including the Queens Arts Fund New Works Grant and the City Artist Corps Grants from The New York Foundation for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

“Solo En La Galeria”
“Alone In The Gallery” (2020)

A gallery, stripped of its usual patrons, becomes an intimate sanctuary for the exploration of identity and existence. Within this secluded space, the boundaries between observer and observed blur, inviting viewers into a poignant meditation on the complexities of the human experience.

 With only the dim glow of the laptop screen illuminating the space, the protagonist connects to a projector, initiating a mesmerizing interplay of light and shadow. Using QuickTime, they commence a delicate dance of self-representation, capturing their movements against the backdrop of the gallery's emptyness. And with each repetition of the loop, the narrative deepens, weaving a tapestry of self-reflection and contemplation.

“Solo En La Galeria” is a compelling artistic creation filmed within the captivating setting of a gallery devoid of human presence. Utilizing the space as a carefully curated backdrop, the artist transforms it into a stage for introspection and self-exploration.

“ It is a testament to the transformative power of art, captured within the stillness of a gallery devoid of human presence during a global pandemic.“

Produced at Flux Factory, NYC in 2020.
