about the work
" Collectively 'Time' was decided as our subject for visual engagement. Our subject in time concerned immobility, the incarceration of the body in various fields, from the corporeal to the built environment, onto nature and the screen, along with the resistances to containment so that the body may eventually find liberation within nature.
It reflected our inability to stay still, the necessity of movement and the connection with the exterior.
Through this exercise with artists from different Latin American countries I encountered various mediums each worked with, and we sought to collectively reaffirm our shared cultural and artistic diversity as something to treasure in our societies.
The project further allowed me to explore other forms and find inspiration in different creative mediums."
