How can art be a tool to reflect our relations with our surroundings, and to expand our community to include non-human beings
such as animals, mountains and rivers? How can art be a tool to alter our perspectives and expand our imaginaries to understand
and respect the world as Pluriverse, and that Nature is not common? Based on my personal experience growing up with my indigenous
grandmother and sharing time in a handicraft center, where different Peruvian cosmovisions met; my encounter with protesters
resisting against a mining project to defend their world and Pacha Mama; reflections about persisting colonial structures
and severe problems humanity is facing; and the search for traditional knowledge in textiles and iconographies, I experiment
with performance, installation, video, and Kipus, to reconnect with and resignify the surroundings with my own body and mind,
and invite others to join.
