About the artwork:
El retorno del metahumano o 'Usted es un animal; actúe acorde' (The return of the metahuman or 'You are an animal; act accordingly') –
‘Oh, humans! Believing that reason and language frees you from instinct. Building machines to understand, do and undo. Not catching the wind because they can't. Oh humans! So self-absorbed, so forgetful. Hearing but not listening, and letting the world’s singing pass them by. Oh humans! So animal and so unaware of how beautiful that is.’
Part of the Telúrico series –
(Telluric) Of or relating to the earth.
What is housed in a rock? Through the cutting of a stone it is possible to look at a story as old as the planet. The stones, witnesses of time, of life itself, recount in their materiality, in the cracks, colors, mineral formations, shapes and textures, a synthesis of this place we inhabit and to which we belong.
The native peoples, throughout history and the globe, have maintained a search for earthly unity, for understanding this place and those who inhabit it, as part of the same system. This photographic series is situated in the mineral testimony as a metaphor for ancestral values.
Rocks, like the ancestral wisdom of indigenous peoples, are the result of a very long history, and their existence in the bustle of the present is essentially resistance.
In recognition of this wisdom and the symbolic contribution it implies for this work, a percentage of sales will go to the Voluntary Fund for Indigenous Populations of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
