DESIERTO SUR, on going project since 2013
the project explores the southern desert of Perú, -from Lima to Tacna (in the border with Chile)- based on the picturesque representation of the desert by working with its colours and forms in regards of the human memory. Every moment of the day delivers a different type of the desert, what you see now in 2 hours will disappear and become something else, both physically and metaphorically aspects change and deliver a new view and thought, any natural condition by insignificant, will transform the desert and dislocates the visitor. For that reason, the memory plays an important role in this contemplative process.
I’ve been developing my practice based on the exploration of vast territories and the process of making Desierto Sur teaches me how to contemplate the relationship between human, space and nature.
- DESIERTO SUR form part of Vastness Project.
/-The Daydream is a nourished contemplating the greatness-/ Bachelard Gaston
Contemplating the immensity determines a pure state that takes us to a parallel world, be present in a great space is a personal moment constantly repressed by the everyday life. Therefore, a vast space could positions us inside a dream.
