Isla Mu, Romance Tropical 2016

Romance Tropical is a conceptual body of work by Puerto Rican artist Mónica Félix based on the original plot and random details found on the first Puerto Rican film with sound by the same title. The work is composed of a series of photographs and video presentation. The artist takes the outline of this unique Caribbean treasure of early cinema, Romance Tropical (1934) and tells the story in her own images yet marking references to what she found in a two-year long research about the vanished film. The series is complimented by installation work, that together with photography and video, compose the scenario and events of the represented scenes.
