The immortality of the almost eternal

Participative installation during Artecámara in ArtBo, Bogotá, CO. 2012

View during participating public.

100 drawings, 4 paintings, sketches and texts on walls, and concrete bricks are installed in such way to include the audience. Drawings and paintings are abstractions of architecture from ancient civilizations: pyramids, ziggurats, temples and sacred tombs, building a narrative which suggests the idea of eternity, supremacy and permanency. The importance of drawing and writing on the wall is related with processes that attempt to illustrate the collective participation in the project. In the same way, more than 300 concrete bricks were disposed publicly to raise up a transforming monuments. The result of these collaborative sculptures, is not the essential aim, the gesture of conceiving dialogues between the audience and the creative process are in such manner the most meaningful achievement.

This project was selected with other 32 art works for “Artecámara” at the International Art Fair of Bogotá (ArtBo, October, 2012. Colombia). Curated by Conrado Uribe.
