Asymmetric Psychogeography

3-channel-video, color, sound, 18'. 18 concrete blocks. 2022

Psicogeografia Asimétrica -born from the cartographic experience of the city where I was born and raised- it is materialized in an installation where a 3-channel video dialogues with a sculpture series and together form an emotional landscape. Lima, is that place that I recognize but that also appears to me as something unknown.

An abyss. A city made of fragments that is difficult to think about and that I show as that blurred horizon of the sea and the desert. In its constructions we can see the unfulfilled promise, the failed national project, the ruin as a testimony of time passing by and a future that never arrives. The short-circuit of a city so difficult to think about is like the mirage of the horizon in the desert: are they houses? people? buildings? animals? This impossibility of representation is the impossibility of a city of sand that does not allow itself to be looked at but that invites me to imagine its possibilities and its future that is about to come.
