EARTHQUAKES IN OAXACA, MEXICO
We believe socially-engaged art can catalyze healing in moments of urban trauma. We create opportunities for knowledge exchange through artist residencies to build emotional resilience in impacted communities.
We are currently looking for artists interested in working with grassroots organizations in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca.
Diastrophisms is a sound installation with a modular system that sends images through rhythmic patterns. It is built on a set of debris from the Alto Río building that was destroyed by the 27F earthquake in 2010 in Chile. With Diastrophisms we were looking for a poetical, critical and political crossing between technology and matter, in order to raise questions about the relationship between human beings and nature, and to consider the construction of memory in a community by questioning the notion of monument, as well as to imagine new forms of communication in times of crisis.
