CCA is pleased to present Las muertes chiquitas (The Little Deaths), a project by Catalan artist Mireia Sallares. Not just a film, Las muertes chiquitas is a complex project which includes a book, a photographic installation, an exhibition, a documentation centre and a series of discussions. For this iteration, Sallares will present a performance, workshop and discussion evening focusing on the making of the film in Mexico and the issues raised in the work, followed by a separate screening of the film, which is five hours long and screened in two parts with a break in between.

La muerte chiquita (The little death) is the colloquial expression in Mexico for an orgasm. A descriptive expression that, although it refers to a sexually excited climax, also contains the imagery associated with death. These are, also, the paths taken with the narrations of the women that Mireia Sallarès interviews during three years. The most intimate confessions about their relationship with pleasure, and also pain, but nearly as a pretext that allows them stretch out, embark on fragmented stories about their private experiences which, in one way or another, are interwoven with the historical context and social group they are immersed in.
