Andean Region: Body as an archive

What is a gesture? What does it communicate or teaches?

We carry within us, the gestures of our ancestors: our bodies almost mirror them. They taught us how to move in front of others, how to speak, how to be silent, how to love others and ourselves. Gestures that gave us life to continue the lineage. Their voices, as well as their silences, reach us from afar to learn and unlearn how to experience ourselves in alternative ways.

Their memories and dreams live in our flesh. These gestures translated into embodied memories are projections of one’s own and others’ desires, manifested in these explorations that seek to remodel the woman’s body and honour life.
