horizonte sin horizonte

The sea is loaded with shipwrecks

5-minutes video
Salvador Bahia, 2007

In the limits of the sea ships circulate through vertical horizons, inverted and juxtaposed realities, a trip where time is annulled and loses its meaning, space is diluted and found parallel in the vertical lines of an Aymara weave, used to carry, store and transport (maybe the same function of ships). The cadence of the Terremoto de Sipe-Sipe, cavalry bolero, that accompanied the Bolivian fighters to the Chaco War and that today accompanies burials in popular neighborhoods, evokes the memory and invites us to think about losses, migrations and looting.
