Amazon Region: Body as an archive

The vastness of the jungle prints its strength on the bodies of indigenous women, who narrate their experiences through their corporeality. The indigenous body becomes an active canvas upon which ancestral memories of plants, rocks, water… of the fluidity of childhood are projected and enacted, ratifying tenderness and the ability to be present.


These works portray the gestures of the environment, they are re-interpretations of moments that we revisit to soak up the sensations contained in our childhoods or the immensity of the jungle. Our faces speak about our communities, about the joyful responsibility to walk and heal collectively, to reconcile the imbalances of the environment.


These are all embodied memories that refer to a diverse territory in which new layers of connection with nature are always discovered as a promise of life.
