Bodies contained within each other
We are immersion. Human existence is only possible thanks to the relationships we establish with other living beings and with those that science has classified as abiotic or “non-living”. For this reason, I start from the idea of imagining my existence as one more body, submerged in the mixture of bodies that we are, contained among each other, without any hierarchy.
Bodies contained among themselves is an audiovisual installation, made up of two ceramic pieces with contact speakers, a glass piece, a photograph and a book that has the moor as its reference point and dead leaves and the central pith as its object of study: parts of the body of some plant species of the genus Espeletia or Frailejón. I found in this plant an exposed and immobile body, capable of living in an extreme environment, since its morphology and physiology was created from an adaptive relationship with the atmosphere, so no matter how deep you will observe inside this plant I realized that this and its environment are inseparable, the existence of one without the other is not possible. From there I began to find very interesting relationships between the mechanism of the plant and the means of my artistic practice: ceramics and sound.
