Coming into land. 2016 - 2017

This is a group of photographs that document performances between Peru and England. These performances are based on the idea of rooting my self to the land. I understand that when one moves to another place one will always be melancholic about home. Nevertheless in a wider sense earth is home for the human being.

In my work I consider the old myths and believes of Quechua culture, which developed a strong relation with the world that surrounded it. In their view, nature had a spirituality and there was a mutual respect between the land and the society which inhabited it.

During these performances I introduce myself to the landscapes and I make a ritual which consists on whistling and collecting parts of the land to develop a relationship of mutual care.
