Between September and November, in many towns along the coast and mountains, the canals are cleaned before the arrival of the rains. In each cultivated valley, the purification of the irrigation canals represents a renovating cleansing and a cultural renaissance of the landscape. This is the result of the millenary design of an extensive geography in the Coast, Andes and Amazonia, which acknowledges and respects the most essential ecology for the life of the regions: the water cycle.
This specific series of works entitled “NO LAND”, seek to rescue ancestral rituals related to sacred places, ancestral geography and original memory. As a result of my own exploration, the work is presented as a syncretic bricolage, in an attempt to reconcile different doctrines, a process of transculturalization and miscegenation: the union of the sacred and the secular. Being a female Latin American artist in an era of multiple encounters and realities.
NO LAND it’s a new work that bring us closer to our cultural identity and strengthen the integration between communities. It is essential to place ourselves at the forefront of adaptation to climate change while upholding sustainability principles, many of which are present in indigenous knowledge of landscapes and their productivity. In this connection, sustainability develops a dynamic social, cultural, environmental and economic balance.
