Fluid Bodies

During three weeks, artists explore their own relationships to vital resources such as land, fire, water, plants, food and communication, forging them into both established and imagined cultural representations. What began as a personal journey of curiosity gets translated into artwork that speaks of encounter, extraction, colonisation and settlement, resonating with local people’s relationship to the Guapamacátaro valley. The works embody an idyllic, almost over-simplified view of a new place, yet the symbolic imagery allows for a deep connection between the work, its surroundings and local histories.

RESIDENCY: May 24th – June 15th, 2015
EXHIBITION: Saturday June 13th, 2015, 13:00 to 18:00 hrs
